The National Corvette Museum’s groundbreaking Driven by Design exhibit, in the planning stages for many years, is finally open to the public.
Located in the Bowling Green, Kentucky-based museum’s Design and Engineering Gallery, the 6,500 sq. ft. DbD Exhibit details the history of Corvette design, intermixed with behind-the-scenes stories of the diverse group of individuals responsible for Chevrolet’s iconic sports car.
This long-term exhibit, planned by the Museum’s full-time curatorial staff along with co-curator (and retired GM Design Chief) Tom Peters, uses hundreds of interactive elements, artifacts, hands-on objects and motion-activated content to tell the Corvette design history story.
Corvette’s many vice presidents of design, beginning with Harley Earl in the 1950s through Mike Simcoe today, headline but the exhibit also brings to light lesser-known stories of those who worked out of the spotlight but were no less influential in creating the lines that would shape the auto industry.
It’s a full overview of the intricate and exciting car-design process, from sketches and renderings to clay and prove-out models that includes future-looking projects and designs.
