On Friday November 4th, 2016, Professor Dea Varone took her Creative Thinking Class AD103 to the North Carolina Museum of Art to see the “Rolling Sculpture” exhibit of Art Deco Cars of the 1930s & 40s.

Miss Varone’s class was able to learn about how the international art movement influenced automakers of the 30s and 40s. Contrasting to modern day automotive incentives of fuel efficiency and cheap plastic parts, these cars and motorcycles were thoughtfully made using luxurious details and aircraft-inspired materials to create not only eye catching design but priceless works of art.

“I found the exhibit impressive and enjoyed the unique retro designs of the Art Deco cars that were displayed beautifully for the visitors to see and admire” – Clayton Wood (Living Arts College Filmmaking Student).

“The art deco period—from the 1920s to the 1940s—is known for blending modern decorative arts with industrial design and is today synonymous with luxury and glamour.” http://ncartmuseum.org/exhibitions/archive/rollingsculpture
