What it is:
A life-size DeLorean (Back to the Future) and a super rare Ferrari (Ferris Bueller's Day Off) have real crystals growing throughout them. Don't miss the 3rd floor where the walls themselves look like they're dissolving. Check more photos in the exhibition link below!

Why it Matters:
IF you want to see these in person, you should wait 2 weeks: I'm producing an audio tour for "LES Art Week" in 2 weeks, that will feature an architecture audio tour of THIS 3-story gallery!!  So you can see the cars AND hear secrets from the architect that will change your view of the building forever, in one shot!
Learn more and purchase tickets for the full 8-gallery audio tour that you can hear anytime from 10/18-10/21 here:
