Our 2017 holiday trip to New York City was highlighted with a stop at my favorite museum…the Museum of Modern Art – MoMA. Along with visiting the masterworks of artists such as Picasso, Matisse, Mondrian, Monet, Pollack, and Warhol, I always make time to visit the exquisite design by John Barnard.

I’ve followed motor racing all my life. I don’t get caught up too much with the nuts and bolts aspect of racing. The draw for me since I was a kid has been the aesthetic beauty of the cars. The sound, the smell, the sport and skill of driving all play a part too. But it’s “the look” that is the main draw for me. It’s only fitting that this work of art is so proudly and prominently on display. It’s a Masterpiece!
