Details:Over the history of motoring, hood ornaments evolved from the practical (externally mounted radiator caps) to the purely decorative. Today only a few luxury brands continue the tradition. Why were hood ornaments so popular and what led to their demise? Cast in Chrome at the Frick Car and Carriage Museum will take a look at the evolution of these decorative automobile elements. What began as a means to monitor radiator temperature became a way of displaying status and personalizing vehicles. The popularity of these adornments was not lost on manufacturers, who saw an opportunity for branding, creating factory hood ornaments associated with specific makes and models. Cast in Chrome explores the relationship between car makes and hood ornament designs, looks at the artists who sculpted these miniature works of art, and examines their decline in popularity.
