Dreams from Detroit

Dreams from Detroit
Images of the American Car in the mid 20th Century - Richard Cox

08 February 2020 until 21 March 2020

Main Gallery

DFD documents a period in automobile history in America that was characterized by  an approach to design and styling that paid little concern with fuel  economy and restraint in design.  The automobile design studios in Detroit, at the time, were dealing with  perceptible aero-dynamics, the influence of aircraft  and rocket design  exemplified by sometimes outrageous exuberance. Visions of the future which reflected the times in which they conceived.  The images in this show centre around the late 1950s until the mid 70s.
