    A Cord 812 would have been a nice American addition, and I have always thought of the original VW beetle as a bit of art deco design for the common man. How about a show with one or more of the BMW art cars (Calder, Stella, Warhol and others painted various BMWs - my personal favorite is the one by Jeff Koons)?

    Will there be an opportunity to see under the hoods of these cars?

    What is the history and significance of the projected image of a person hanging from the right-hand arm of a 10-number "clock" I photographed at the Art Deco Auto exhibit. (The exhibit is stunning!)

    Barry, thanks for your comment and your question! NCMA designer Dave Rainey chose that film still from the 1927 silent art deco classic "Metropolis" (Fritz Lang, director) because he saw a close resemblance in the typography of the 10-hr clock, a hallucination in the worker's mind, and the Bauhaus style of the numbers on the speedometer gauge of the Chrysler Thunderbolt in our Rolling Sculpture exhibition.
