Choices: Alternative Cars, Alternative Fuels

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

From Henry Ford’s Model T to George Jetson’s flying bubble, cars have a special place in the hearts of American culture. The independence offered by the automobile is part of the American tradition. But can we sustain our love of the road?

As technology improves and the world gets smaller, we have come to realize the global impact of automobiles on the planet we call home. For the sake of saving the environment in which we live, we must find less impactful alternative to oil and the machines that run on it.
With continued research, the future holds the promise of viable choices in the automotive marketplace.
Choices: Alternative Cars, Alternative Fuels opens May 15 and runs through August 17, 2012. The exhibit is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 am - 10:00 pm, Saturdays 8:30 am - 12:00 pm.
