Current Events and Exhibits at the Arthur Secunda Museum
American Dreaming: Automotive Concept Art from Detroit
- April 28 at 7:00 PM — Free to the public. Complimentary beer, wine, hor’s doeuvres, and meet-and-greet with the collector
The exhibit will feature career Ford stylist Dean Beck who worked on several seminal concept cars during the 1960s. Beck’s artwork on the Gyron, Unitron, Mercury Cougar and the mid-engine Mustang proposal from the late 1960’s has never publicly been shown as a group. There will be approximately 30 works of art and the surviving scale model of the mid-engine Mustang on exhibit.
Congressional Art Competition
Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated.
Students submit entries to their representative’s office, and panels of district artists select the winning entries. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
