Steve Stevens: From Excaliburs to Wienermobiles

Join William “Steve” Stevens, son of industrial designer Brooks Stevens, for an in-depth exploration of the design work his father did for Studebaker, which led to the famous “Mercebaker” that became the Excalibur.

Period images and vehicle models will be available for guests to check out after the talk.
