Come May 21st and you should be queuing up the High Museum of Art in Atlanta for a trip down fantasy lane. The fast and furious will get treated a lineup of seventeen select cars that are catch-phrased “Dream Cars”. Sarah Schleuning, the High’s Curator of Decorative Arts and Design are proud to showcase concept cars like the BMW Gina, the 1935 Bugatti “Aerolith”, and the 33 inch-tall wedge-shaped car ‘Stratos hf Zero’ amongst others.
Considered to be an important exhibition in the arena of automotive design evolution, the lineup has been carefully planned to showcase some key innovative elements. The bizarre shaped Stout Scarab is one design that raises many brows as far as fluid lines and aerodynamics are concerned.
