Savoy Automobile Museum

CARTERSVILLE, GEORGIA – Savoy Automobile Museum in Cartersville, GA announced the opening of thier newest temporary exhibit, Rolling Sculptures: European Art Deco. Art Deco became a worldwide movement focused on the future, modernizing industrial innovations by embracing a style of elegance and sophistication. It impacted nearly every visual medium. The Art Deco period occurred mainly between the two world wars. The fluidity and grace of Art Deco design complimented the aerodynamic structure of automobiles, typically resulting in two-door coupes and roadsters with sweeping fender lines, long, exaggerated hoods, intricate chrome detailing, prominent headlights, and tapered trunks that reflect the glamour and luxury of this iconic movement. This exhibit showcases 1930’s European Art Deco vehicles.
