On November 4, Doug McDonnell, one of the museums educator docents, follows up with Part 2: Automotive Ornamentation.

The speaker December 2 will be Gerald Greenfield, head judge for the Pacific Northwest Concours d’Elegance.

The lunch-time lectures run from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Visitors can bring a brown-bag lunch from home, buy lunch at the museum’s Classic Cafe, or just sit and listen.

In conjunction with McDonnell’s presentation and Metal-Urge, a community event to encourage the metal arts, the museum’s Family Zone is staging a hood ornament design contest in October and November, with prizes for the best ornaments.

The LeMay is located in Tacoma, Washington.
