Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: Selections from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection
Open through May 10, 2015
Jean and Fred Sharf have contributed a wide range of works to numerous collections at the museum over the years, but one theme does run through their collection: transportation. Fred, whose energy is legendary and who is always on the move, has forever been fascinated by the great speeding up of life that occurred in the middle decades of the 20th century. Planes, trains, and, most of all, automobiles, appear over and over again in the collection, as Fred has sought to capture the excitement that accompanied the simple act of getting from one place to another at mid-century. Now, for the first time, we’ve gathered the planes, trains, and automobiles of Fred’s—and the world’s—dreams in one place. There are "spin-dizzies," concept cars, see-through model planes, and a train that lights up; many by major designers such as Raymond Loewy and Viktor Schreckengost. Come and take a trip!
