IHS’s Traveling Exhibit Auto Indiana
The Lowell Public Library will host Auto Indiana, one of the Indiana Historical Society’s (IHS’s) traveling exhibits, from March 6 – April 6. The exhibit, which takes visitors on a ride through Indiana’s rich automotive past, will be on display at the library, located at 1505 East Commercial Ave, in Lowell. Auto Indiana explores the mark Indiana’s inventors and innovators such as Elwood Haynes and Ralph Teetor and automakers such as Studebaker and Duesenberg left on the industry—and vice versa.
The exhibit also illuminates ties between the automobile and the development of many other economic opportunities for the “Crossroads of America,” such as the iron, steel, and glass businesses. In addition, it explores how the automobile became part of the American Dream and popular culture, from movies to making personal memories.
Finally, the exhibit allows guests to gaze down the road ahead for Hoosiers, from the environmental impact of automobiles to a look at manufacturing today. Auto Indiana is made possible by Kroger.
