Gilmore Speaker Series

The Art of the Art Deco Automobile

Sunday March 30 - 3 p.m. in the Heritage Theater

David Lyon, professor emeritus from Western Michigan University and author of The Kalamazoo Automobilist (2002) and The Gilmore Car Museum: Miles from the Ordinary (2010, 2012) will be speaking at the Gilmore Car Museum on March 30th as part of the Museum’s Sunday Speaker Series. David’s presentation will describe and interpret Art Deco automobiles, distinguishing between the American and European Art Deco style, as he contrasts this particular art form with other automotive styles. The discussion will be supported by photographs of artifacts and autos from Gilmore Car Museum’s very own signature collection.

Each of the Sunday afternoon presentations begin at 3 pm and are only $5 each per person, or free with regular museum admission. The lectures are appropriate for all ages and guests are encouraged attend those that interest them most. No registration is required and walk-ins are welcome.
