Is biking to see an automotive exhibit the ultimate in cognitive dissonance? Don’t ask me; I was an English major. Anyway. Whitney and I did just that a couple of Thursdays ago, for the members-only preview of Sensuous Steel: Art Deco Automobiles.
We somehow found our friend Amanda in the crowded hallway outside the exhibition. Drinks and free hors d’oeuvres were on offer, but about 30 minutes in, the latter were completely gone and even the former was limited (out of white wine!). Lesson: When coming to an event that is likely to include many retirees, expect the food to run out early.
We enjoyed wandering through the exhibit and considering which of these cars we would most want to drive (and which you would probably need a driver for). Now, for a few car photos!
