With its emergence in the 1920s, Art Deco design inspired wide-ranging innovations that emphasized a blend of industrialism and luxury. At the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Auto­mobiles and Motorcycles, 1929–1940, examines how automakers embraced Art Deco with a display of 14 stunning cars and three motorcycles, along with images and videos. The autos on display, with their sleek aerodynamics and chrome detailing and ornamentation, are unlike anything you’ll see on the road today. February 21-May 30, 2016.
