Auburn Cord Duesenberg to host sculptures

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum, 25 miles north of Fort Wayne in Auburn, Indiana (off the Lincoln Highway but a popular diversion), will exhibit automotive bronze sculptures created by nationally acclaimed artist Alexander Buchan, and his grandchildren Alex, 11, and Adeline, 6, from March 14 through April 12. Buchan worked as Chief Design Sculptor at General Motors for 38 years.

The public is invited to attend the free exhibit opening on Friday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at the museum, where Buchan and his grandchildren will be on-hand to discuss their work. Included in the exhibit will be a very rare 1910 American Underslung automobile and a customized Buchan sculpture of the car and its owners.

The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum houses more than 120 antique and special interest cars plus related exhibits on three floors. The museum is in the 1930s headquarters of the Auburn Automobile Company and is a National Historic Landmark. Group and family rates are available. The museum is open daily from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. year round.
