If you haven’t seen or made plans to see it by now, chances are that unless you win the lottery, you won’t!

Chris Szwedo, the filmmaker who made the acclaimed Lime Rock Park: Secret Valley of Racing.

Les Art Decoratif wing of the Louvre in Paris is hosting “L’Art de l’Automobile” until August 28th. It features significant automobiles in the Ralph Lauren collection. Unquestionably the finest setting in the world, the Louvre and Paris make the exhibit of what are already historically important vehicles a once in a lifetime experience.

Tony Singer’s images are featured here in our Photo Gallery and our recent MMR Community Newsletter. If you haven’t subscribed, you should. If you do we will send you our most recent Community Newsletter featuring stories about this show and much more.

The Louvre has added an enriching new dimension to their exhibit. Sound! Filmmaker Chris Szwedo had worked extensively as cameraman/director in filming the collection for the memorable 2005 MFA Boston Exhibition, aptly named, Speed, Style and Beauty. He was asked to record the sound of each vehicle beginning with start up and thru to full chat.

His entertaining account of this sometimes rewarding at times harrowing experience can be found at his site. It also contains links to the actual sounds and images on the Ralph Lauren site.

Indulge yourself. And don’t forget to subscribe.
