Visit Indy at IMA Dream Cars

Dream Cars is attracting quite the attention these days! This incredible exhibit of conceptual ingenuity is perfect for any automobile lover in the Indianapolis area. We were thrilled to work with Visit Indy again this year for their Dream Cars reception. With nearly 400 attendees, their evening was a success filled with networking and design appreciation.

Once guests ascended the stairs they had the opportunity to design their own miniature model dream car before entering Pulliam Family Great Hall. Juxtaposed to Sol Lewitt’s Wall Drawing No. 652 were large images classic concept cars being projected onto the wall.


Guests chatted at gold sequined cocktail tables and helped themselves to butler passed hors d’oeuvres. Attendees had the opportunity to venture in and out of the Dream Cars exhibit from Pulliam at their own pace while grazing on food stations setup around Pulliam. Bistro lighting and sheer drapery traversed the Great Hall creating an almost whimsical flair. Wow was certainly the word for the evening.
