Thanks to Stephen Hendrickson for the heads-up. Organized by the McNay Museum of San Antonio, Texas American Dreams: Classic Cars and Postwar Paintings explores the ingenuity and innovation of postwar America. This period, known as America’s Golden Age, witnessed the explosion of Abstract Expressionism, Pop art, and Op art; the mass production of automobiles; and increased wealth and consumerism. The exhibition presents 10 classic cars as modern sculpture, alongside paintings from the McNay’s collection and select loans.

"In 1976, New York’s Museum of Modern Art mounted a controversial solo show of Eggleston’s color prints. Although critics deemed it the most hated exhibition of the year, it strongly influenced a subsequent generation of fine art photographers and filmmakers. His effect on photography remains notable today, as does his subject matter. From a bare light bulb hanging from a richly painted ceiling to the contents of his freezer, Eggleston selects the commonplace and transforms it into the extraordinary." from Eggleston show at the Portland Art Museum (Oregon)
