See some of the most wonderful works of art on wheels in the world at EyesOn Design. Held Father’s Day Sunday, June 16, on the grounds of Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, the stellar automotive exhibition also serves as a fund raiser for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.
This year’s theme is “Design Around the World.” Design is universal, organizers report, and helps demonstrate differences of design by country and allow spectators to compare these designs within different vehicle types.
One of this year’s highlights will be a sneak peek at the 1939 Lincoln Continental prototype, shown in the photo above. The one-of-a-kind vehicle will go on display at the new Edsel & Eleanor Ford House Visitor Center, slated to open next year.
Tickets: $25 per person. Children 12 & under free w/adult. Active duty military free w/ID. The exhibition runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Father’s Day. In addition, EyesOn Design features special exhibitions and concept and production vehicles which debuted during the previous year’s auto show circuit, including ones which were awarded at EyesOn Design at the North American International Auto Show.
EyesOn Design receives its support from both domestic and foreign vehicle manufacturers, as well as automotive suppliers and other loyal companies. Judging is facilitated by active and retired exterior and interior designers from leading automotive and supplier companies.
