The rise of the automobile as a popular visual symbol of U.S.
culture will be explored in the exhibition, which will feature
approximately 125 works of art in a wide variety of media –
including painting, sculpture, photography, prints and drawings
– and a diversity of artists and perspectives, drawn from the
Museum’s permanent collection along with important loans from
many other North American institutions.
The exhibition will be on view June 15-Sept. 15, 2019 at
TMA, the exclusive U.S. venue. “As part of the Life is a
Highway exhibition, TMA wants visitors to not only see the
exhibition but experience a bit of car culture by having car
shows on the Museum grounds,” said Maria Iafelice, TMA’s
youth and family programs manager.
The car shows at TMA will take place in front of the Museum
along Monroe Street, which will be closed to through traffic.
