The event is limited to 40 people.

The Arts and Cultural Alliance (ACA) of Newport County presents an Arts Behind the Scenes event featuring the Audrain Automobile Museum, “Transitions”.  The event is scheduled during the transition between themed shows. Discussion will include the Exhibition Statement, the War Board, the individual car exhibition storyboards, graphics development, and iPad stories. Also marketing/promotion, lighting and the practicalities associated with swapping the cars in and out, and security.

“More of an Art Museum than a Car Museum,”  the Museum celebrates the Machine Age, when art and automobiles came together

. With access to more than 200  of the most remarkable and rare vehicles ever made, and displays with fully restored vehicles ranging from the beginning of the 20th century through the modern day, vehicles are chosen specifically and showcased based
on ever-changing exhibition themes. By displaying 15-20 cars at a time, the Museum gives patrons members and enthusiasts of all ages a completely unique experience with each visit.  To support its non-profit curatorial mission – its motto is “Preserving Newport’s History One Car At A Time,” the Museum acquires, by gift and purchase, cars with social history in Newport, Rhode Island, and southern New England.

The Audrain Automobile Museum is located at 222 Bellevue Ave, Newport, RI 02842. For more information about the Audrain Automobile Museum visit http://audrainautomuseum.org/  Contact  information: (401) 856-4420 or info@audrainautomuseum.org
