Exhibit opening



TREMONT — The Seal Cove Auto Museum is officially opening for the season on Tuesday, May 1, featuring a new exhibit, “Selling Lifestyle and Leisure: Art, Advertising, and the Automobile.”

The exhibit includes a handful of “special guest” vehicles, including a 1901 Victor Steam Carriage, 1912 Alco 7 Passenger Touring automobile, 1929 Reo Flying Cloud, 1931 Franklin, 1910 Pierce Arrow and a 1957 Chevrolet Belair (now the youngest automobile in the museum by 25 years).

Using a combination of original advertisements, large-scale reproductions, and multimedia presentations, this exhibit will tell the story of automobile advertising and design, the social trends that shaped the ads and the talented artists and illustrators who created them.
