MEDIA CREDENTIALS

Since its inception, Art Center Car Classic has examined automotive culture and vehicle architecture through the lens of design. Today and into the future, Art Center continues looking to cultivate relationships with those journalists who are not only interested in transportation design, but the designer behind the design—and ultimately the students who will become the designers of the future. As the College expands its curriculum to further impact the evolution of the automotive industry and the broader field of transportation, we are more than ever looking for those journalists interested in telling a comprehensive—and sometimes complex—Art Center story.

This year's Car Classic provides several unique story opportunities, including:

Quintessential L.A.: The Entertainment industry and automobile culture converge at Art Center
On the Right Track: Art Center unveils new programs of study for Transportation Design majors with a focus on Alternative Transportation and Vehicle Interiors
What's Past is Prologue: Future transportation designers find inspiration in classic cars
Street to Screen: The influence of urban culture on the automobiles and vehicles we see in movies, television and video games
Screen to Street: From The Fast and the Furious to Grand Theft Auto, movies and video games influence urban culture
On Set and Behind the Scenes: Camera cranes; trailers for cast, crew and property; Star Waggons and catering trucks are all vehicles needed to make movies
Cruising the Boulevard: From 50s convertibles to stretch limos, there are multiple ways to drive in style
The Road to Success: Art Center’s Graduate Transportation Systems and Design program is focused on sustainable solutions
History in a box: Unpacking Art Center’s industrial design photography collections for the world
Bridging the Gap: Major car collectors support the next generation of transportation  designers through philanthropy
