Automotive Jewelry

1933 Pierce-Arrow mascot
The Hemmings blog reports that the AACA Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania will host a new exhibit entitled Automotive Jewelry featuring photographs of car mascots and hood ornaments by Michael Furman from his 2013 book of the same name.  Furman is well known in the automotive world.  He is most often chosen by auction companies to photograph their most valuable automotive lots, and several museums have chosen him to document the items in their automotive exhibits.  The AACA exhibit runs from now to September 19, 2015.
