    2016 CATALOG | American Dreaming — Corvette, 7 Generations & Beyond

    Exhibition runs through Saturday, February 18th


    Born in the boom years following World War II, the Corvette matured into a bona fide American icon. First and foremost, automobile designers are artists.

    Automotive artwork, in large part, was never supposed to leave the studios they were designed in and were often destroyed. This scarcity makes the exhibition and catalog that much more remarkable and history.

    Our exhibition catalog contains 120+ pages of these historic and rare sketches. Catalogs are full color and will be available in a very limited quantity. All proceeds of exhibition catalog sales to benefit the arts programs at the Scarab Club.

    Purchased catalogs will be shipped domestically. International inquirers, please reach out to director@scarabclub.org.

    JUROR 
    Cynthia Greig is a visual artist working primarily in photography and video. She earned her MFA from the University of Michigan, as well as an MA in art history from the University of Iowa and BFA in printmaking from Washington University, St. Louis. Her work has been exhibited at the Art Gallery of Windsor, CCS Center Galleries, Detroit Artists Market, Houston Center for Photography, Konsthallen- Bohusl?ns Museum, Museum of Contemporary Photography, Museum of Fine Arts Houston and National Museum, Wroc?aw, and Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, and is held in the public collections of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, MFA Houston, Museum of Contemporary Photography, George Eastman Museum and Smith College Museum of Art. Inspired by collecting 19th and early 20th century photographs and the representation of women, Greig invented the fictional character of a 19th-century cross-dressing female photographer as part of her installation, “New Eden: The Life and Work of Isabelle Raymond. In turn, she co-authored the book, Women in Pants: Manly Maidens, Cowgirls and Other Renegades (Harry N. Abrams) with fellow artist and collector, Cate Smith. Greig’s studio is based in Ferndale, Michigan.
