National Corvette Museum Announces 2024 Exhibit And Event Schedule

The National Corvette Museum throttles into 2024 with an unmatched exhibit and event line-up for the Museum’s 30th Anniversary.

Luster Exhibition Premiere at MOAS, Daytona Beach, FL

March 15 – LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting

Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, cars and motorcycles have not only been ubiquitous on the nation’s streets and highways, but also in film, top forty hits, and in painting. With the emergence of photo-realism in the 1960’s, motor vehicles assumed a special place of distinction as subject matter in the iconography of American art. LUSTER: Realism and Hyperrealism in Contemporary Automobile and Motorcycle Painting, is a traveling museum exhibition comprised of over 55 paintings by nearly 15 of today’s realists and hyperrealists who specialize in automobiles and motorcycles as their primary subject of choice.

Art will be juxtaposed against Corvettes, motorcycles and other automotive icons that served as the inspiration for the work, including a 1937 Cord 812 on loan from the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, IN.

In anticipation of Corvette’s 70th Anniversary and the National Corvette Museum’s 3oth Anniversary, I’ve been painting steadily on my Corvette diptych paintings, MOMENTUM, to be unveiled at the National Corvette Museum in two months as part of the LUSTER Exhibition through 2024. Be sure to follow the Corvette 70th Anniversary Art Timeline for updates.
