LUSTER at The National Corvette Museum ~ Exhibit Pics

LUSTER Art Exhibition at National Corvette Museum 2024

Lights. Camera. Action!

National Corvette Museum official logoThe NATIONAL CORVETTE MUSEUM shared some fantastic pictures of their new gallery, which showcases the LUSTER exhibit, and I could not resist sharing them with you. Beautifully shot just before the gala and exhibit premier, these pictures celebrate the beautiful art and cars adoring the museum through 2024.

Comprised of more than fifty paintings by nearly fifteen of today’s realists and hyperrealists specializing in automobiles and motorcycles, LUSTER takes up residency in the Museum’s reimagined limited engagement gallery, which is transformed into the region’s newest fine art gallery.

With new appeal to art lovers, the Museum continues to be a destination for car enthusiasts no matter their passion, with LUSTER art alongside incredible cars and motorcycles in the Limited Engagement Gallery, including*:

  • 1937 Cord 812, on loan from the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, which features a phaeton-style body, is a renamed and updated version of the 1936 Cord 810. Designed by Gordon Buehrig for the Auburn Automobile Company, the 812 was famous for its “coffin nose” appearance. Only 2,972 810s and 812s were ever produced.
  • 1941 Indian Sport Scout, on loan from Mike Wolfe and the American Picker Columbia Motor Alley, which is an attempt to recapture the popularity of the earlier 101 Scout, which was renowned for its superior handling. The United States’ entry into World War II halted Indian’s civilian production, ending the further development of the Sport Scout.
  • 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, a car that has reached such iconic status that many people know it simply as a ’57 Chevy. The ’57 Chevy remains a sought-after collector car today and one of the defining automobiles of its generation.
  • 1958 Chevrolet Corvette, finished in Charcoal with a red interior, captures the style and splendor of the 1958 design, with this car winning national awards.
