Art Center Design Classic

  • Art Center College of Design (map)

Behind every beautifully designed car, from the 1938 Opel Kapitan to the 2018 Tesla Model 3, stands an innovative designer—one most likely educated at ArtCenter College of Design.

Join auto enthusiasts, car collectors, history buffs and weekend adventurers at Car Classic 2018, where we will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the College’s Transportation Design program.
