Car-toon Creatures, Kustom Kars and Corvettes: The Art and Influence of Ed “Big Daddy” Roth
January 31-December 31, 2020
Dive into an “exSTREAM” educational opportunity with this one of a kind exhibit. Students will explore how the Kustom Kar culture that began in the 1950s/1960s continues to influence car designers of today – including retired General Motor’s Design Chief Tom Peters – whose designs inspired the 6th through 8th generations of Corvettes. Mr. Peters even designed the Corvettes featured in Transformers films. (Transformer cars ‘Crosshairs’ and ‘Sideswipe’ are currently on display within the exhibit). From early Rat Rods to ‘Crosshairs’ and “Sideswipe’, learn how science, technology, robotics, engineering, art and math all play a role in designing and building cars.

Special Emphasis Tours
The National Corvette Museum is the perfect place for students to explore career options. In addition to being a popular tourist attraction, we are like a mini-city with a café, theater, store, insurance agency, an auto repair facility, a library and archives, and a world-class race track. To support these businesses, we have administrative and accounting offices along with IT and marketing professionals. During the tour, students meet with our professionals and discuss their position, job requirements, and career opportunities. (2 hours)
The National Corvette Museum serves as an educational resource for all to enjoy. Through our custom curriculum tours, your lessons in the classroom come to life in the Museum’s many displays. Teaching your students about Physics? Earth Science? American/World History? Design? Economics? We will reinforce your tour with a lesson and/or materials that will enhance your students’ understanding of the content.
The National Corvette Museum welcomes music groups to perform a “Musical Intermission” in the Chevrolet Theater by advance arrangement. Contact Debbie in our Group Sales office (270)467-8808 to learn more and reserve your date.
