Attleboro, Massachusetts

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Would you like a sneak preview of the

2009 Corvette ZR1 and to attend a presentation by

its designer Kirk Bennion, the Chief Designer of

GM’s Corvette Design Studio?

The Attleboro Arts Museum is proud to preview the 2009 Corvette ZR1 and its designer

as part of its Viktor Schreckengost-Legacy Exhibition.

GM Chief Designer Kirk Bennion was a student of the late industrial designer and

educator Viktor Schreckengost. Mr. Schreckengost taught for over 70 years and it is

estimated that every living adult in the United States has used objects designed by him

or one of his students. As part of the Museum’s tribute exhibition to Mr. Schreckengost,

we have asked his accomplished students to display some of their own creative designs.

Kirk Bennion – and the 2009 Corvette ZR1– are a wonderful example of Viktor

Schreckengost’s design influence, and the Attleboro Arts Museum is pleased to spotlight

this supercharged treasure.


The Museum will be hosting a presentation and Q&A by Kirk Bennion on Saturday,

March 29, 2008. This very unique event would offer Corvette enthusiasts the chance to

view the 2009 ZR1, meet with Mr. Bennion and tour the entire Viktor Schreckengost -

Legacy Exhibition.

We will also be holding a silent auction to benefit the Attleboro Arts Museum throughout

the day. Auction items include: ZR1 prototype intercooler manifold, ZR1 wheel mock up,

ZR1 prints/posters, ZR1 press kit, ZR1 sketches - photos of, ZR1 apparel - leather
