Design Masters: A Lifetime of Design Achievement

Join Us for the 37th Annual Celebration of Vehicle Design on Father's Day

2024 EyesOn Design poster featuring the McLaren F1

One of the world's most unique automotive events

Each Father's Day, thousands of car fans journey to the idyllic home of Edsel and Eleanor Ford for the visual feasts that is EyesOn Design. Organized around an annual design theme, vehicle owners are invited to share their rolling sculpture with the world.

Unlike concours d'elegance events, judging is predominately conducted by automotive designers using professional design criteria, not based on restoration or authenticity. The event attracts some of the world's leading designers, collectors, and fans for an unpretentious and unmatched day.

EyesOn Design has raised millions of dollars to support the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology. The DIO, a division of the Henry Ford Health Department of Ophthalmology, supports the visually impaired and organizes groundbreaking eye research conferences.
