Where form meets function

I’ve been on a bit of a classic American car binge this week. Corvettes are among my favorites, especially those from the mid-1960s.

In any event, the purpose of this post is not to jabber on about the Corvette, but to point towards Cincinnati Art Museum’s display of a 1963 Corvette Stingray Z06. The museum has been exhibiting single cars – as part of a commitment to showcasing art and design across disciplines – for some time. Among the classic and concept cars none thus far have been American in design or build. The designation then given to the 1963 Corvette Stingray Z06 is pretty exciting. The only other ‘Vette I’ve seen in a museum collection not dedicated to the automotive industry is buried away in the Smithsonian’s secret storage location. The car is on view in Cincinnati until the end of the month.
