Automotive art returns to Pebble BeachWed, 18 May 2011
Classic cars won’t be the only works of art on display at this year’s Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. The Automotive Fine Arts Society (AFAS) will be making its 26th appearance at the event, where it will exhibit car-themed paintings and sculptures.
“The artists work every year to showcase art never shown before,” AFAS vice president Bill Motta said. “To continue the tradition, they’re bringing pieces that will celebrate this year’s featured marques and special classes.”
That will include subjects such as the Mercedes-Benz 125th anniversary, the Stutz centennial, the Ferrari 250 GTO, Edwardian Rolls-Royce Silver Ghosts and Italian motorcycles.
The Lincoln-sponsored exhibit will take place on Pebble Beach’s 18th fairway on Aug. 21.
