EyesOn Design Automotive Design Exhibition

EyesOn Design is one of America’s premier automotive events. Each year, the event attracts members of the transportation design community, collectors, and the public to celebrate and reflect on design.

Edsel & Eleanor Ford House 

1100 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Shores, MI

Vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Father’s Day. In addition, EyesOn Design features special exhibitions and concept and production vehicles which debuted during the previous year’s auto show circuit, including ones which were awarded at EyesOn Design at the North American International Auto Show.

EyesOn Design receives its support from both domestic and foreign vehicle manufacturers, as well as automotive suppliers and other loyal companies. Judging is facilitated by active and retired exterior and interior designers from leading automotive and supplier companies. 

One of the rare concours to focus on design rather than collectibility.
