Docents will lead attendees through the galleries. The docents at the Revs Institute are seasoned volunteers who have undergone a rigorous training program that provides them with knowledge of not only the vehicles themselves, but the history of the people and the companies that created them. Training is comprised of four distinct components: classroom instruction, vehicle specific study, tour shadowing, and peer evaluation. Utilizing this intensive training, docents guide you through the collection’s four thematic galleries (Automobility, Vitesse, Revs, and Porsche) weaving together each vehicle’s individuality, societal impact, and historical importance; thus bringing the collection to life.

Automobile Archaeology and the Museum

Our disposable culture, obsessed with the newest, new thing recycles, reprocesses and recovers unwanted “old” things leaving nothing. Our modern material heritage is literally going up in smoke at waste-to-energy plants. Nothing of our time is being left for future generations to find. An archaeological point of view is the best lens through which to examine the relationship of humans to the making, and use, in the broadest sense, of automobiles.  Archaeological evidence, the indicia of particularity impounded in the material fabric of automobiles tells us about the people who used or experienced a particular automobile, as well as the culture and the tenor of the time in which it was used independent of documentation, or even absent documentation. These traces we find in the present are the stuff of archaeology. But the archaeological automobile has a dual nature: it is matter and motion. Like musical instruments, watches or submarines, the automobiles are incomprehensible unless experienced in operation.  While “originality of state” is the commonly perceived focus of curation, we can also find vital narratives in the operating automobile as well. Let us also recognize that the automobile is a site human activity as much as any site-based structure. Indeed, the automobile is an archaeological locus, a particular, common, and rich contemporary place. Simultaneously, the automobile can also be an artifact of immense beauty, technical elegance and a repository of all that is great in the human mind and spirit.

Copyright, Customs and Other Bad Things at the Border

This session will address a number of issues in the international aspects of copyrights as well as other issues that can arise in international transactions – buying, selling, importing, etc. With respect to copyright, although an “international copyright registration” does not exist, many nations are parties to various international copyright treaties and conventions that extend protection to foreign works. For example, in addition to other treaties and conventions, the United States is a party to the Berne Convention, the Buenos Aires Convention, and the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS), each of which aim to set certain minimum standards of protection in member nations. While the international copyright treaties and conventions attempt to provide a harmonization between the copyright laws of individual nations, the specific rights extended to the author of a work in a foreign country is highly dependent upon that nation’s specific copyright laws. Copyright is, however, only one aspect of the international issues that can arise in the acquisition abroad or borrowing from abroad of property for exhibition purposes. Source country ownership laws can impact the export, import and right to possess many types of property – including automobiles. Furthermore, clearance of U.S. customs can lead to unintended consequences, including potential seizure and forfeiture of property improperly imported in the United States. Many of these aspects will be explored during this session.

Outside the Comfort Zone: Collaborating with Unusual Sources, Handling the Kickback, and Enjoying the Payoffs

This presentation will focus on my first three years at the National Corvette Museum and bringing an “outside of the box” approach to collections and exhibits at this single marque museum. When I was brought on staff as the Curator there was an unspoken rule that no vehicle other than a Corvette could be displayed in the Corvette Museum, except for in a 5500 sq. ft. flexible exhibit space at the very end of the Museum tour prior to entering the Corvette Store. There was also an unspoken rule that only Corvettes would be in the permanent collections of the National Corvette Museum. Both unspoken rules were clearly leaving the Museum staff struggling to change the Museum exhibits enough to break returning members’ idea that “the Museum never changes.” This presentation will look at the ways the National Corvette Museum has begun stepping outside of the comfort zone of Corvette only and finding unique collaborations with other museums, our membership, and private collectors from around the United States. These collaborations have led to creative opportunities for the Museum, brought new attention to the Museum, and led to overall positive changes at the National Corvette Museum. Although the majority of responses to these new ways of thinking has been positive, there has been push back from some of our membership. The presentation will also look at how to react to negative feedback (including social media attacks) and how important a united front from museum staff and board is in creating new collaborations and opportunities.

Getting Crafty: Engaging Audiences Through Creative Activities

The National Motor Museum, Beaulieu has been building a practice of using its collections in more creative ways to offer increased, deeper and more personal levels of engagement. Several successful projects have shared a number of common benefits. They have prompted fresh research and made new partnerships, trialled different approaches in interpretation and supported learning within a creative context. The popularity of crafting has grown considerably in the UK in recent years and its contribution to well-being has long been recognised. Museums are responding by providing opportunities for alternative ways to connect with collections and simultaneously increasing their relevance to more people. Visitors of all ages and backgrounds can interact with objects to generate their own meanings through poetry, art and craft, linking their personal experience to the stories offered by more traditional interpretation.

The State of the Field: A Strategic Overview for Auto Museums

This session will provide an overview about what’s happening in museums today and what’s on the horizon—and what this might mean for your institution. You’ll gain a perspective on issues and trends on topics like attendance, ethics, and funding plus a look at some benchmarking data sources on areas such as budgets, operations, and governance. Then explore some angles that might affect auto museums. Leave with new insights on key cultural, technological, and economic trends that matter to museums so yours can be best equipped to serve its communities and stakeholders and remain sustainable and relevant. Content for this session will be pulled from AAM’s core work in Excellence, Advocacy, and its Center for the Future of Museums’ research; and data collected from accredited museums. This is a good session for any attendee, but particularly directors and trustees and those that are new to/from outside the museum field.

Automotive Mascots and Hood Ornaments in the Museum

This session will examine the history of automotive mascots and hood ornaments (and explain the difference). The objects are popular with audiences and collectors alike, but a thorough understanding is needed before a museum starts collecting and exhibiting them. Revs Institute’s own Mister Mascot will show examples, providing a general background of their history, including major manufacturers, themes, and materials. Mascots can be a highly effective way to engage audiences, but their increasing financial value means museums face growing costs to obtain them. Attendees will learn how a museum builds a collection, know where to find them, identify expensive originals and cheap reproductions, and how should they be exhibited physically and virtually.

Relevance of Mobility in the Lifecycle of Vehicles

The purpose of the session is to examine the lifecycle of vehicles as historical objects. The speakers will examine how the museums define their audience and how they promote awareness in their objects. Patrick Slebonick will explain how the Studebaker Museum retains interest in an object that was once ubiquitous in a vastly different world, and is now almost never seen. Robert Signum III will discuss how America’s Packard Museum keeps an interest in a brand that was once common on modern roads, but has been gone for two or more generations. Finally, Hirouki Masumo will discuss how what Toyota is doing to support the company’s larger mission in marketing and ensuring their vehicles do not start the slide into becoming historical objects. What are the common themes and differences between the approach taken by each museum, and what lessons can be shared by all?

Acoustic Emission: a Tool for Restarting Historical Engines

Functional conservation, i.e. keeping mechanisms in working conditions, is, from different points of view, the best option to allow visitors to fully enjoy the experience of historical vehicles collections. Nevertheless, this choice has many advantages but does not come without risks. This is the reason why many institutions worldwide have different methods to restart engines. Acoustic emission (AE) may determine the condition of the engine before deciding if it could be restarted or not. The use of AE techniques for historical engines was implemented during the Acoustic Emission Monitoring of Historical Vehicles (ACUME_HV) research project that the Haute Ecole Arc Conservation-restoration has carried out in partnership with the National Car Museum of Mulhouse (MNA), France, (Schlumpf Collection), that has, since many years, a policy of running or restarting engines and the Polytechnic of Lausanne. During the first phase of the project, the AE technique was applied on three similar engines to compare the results. The first engine was a two-cylinder Renault AG1 without heritage status mounted on a bench test to determine a measurement protocol and simulate breakdowns. The second engine was from a heritage car from the MNA collection (Inv.2209), on which the repeatability of these tests was also verified. The tests verified the condition of the engine and even identified a breakdown that was not detected with routine monitoring. Finally, other tests were performed on another engine (Inv.7003), which was supposed to be in a bad condition, to represent the “worst case.” The acoustic emission measurements reinforce the need for maintenance tracking reports. However, the AE technique is very complex and sensitive, so more research work is ongoing to obtain a more complete understanding of the results.

Finding the Untold Stories of Automotive History

This panel discussion will discuss previously uncharted automotive cultures to identify the pioneers who established the industry around the world. How will this change how museums change the way they present history that may require revision to accurately represent a time or culture? Neal Bascomb (speaking from off-site) will present the pre–WWII Grand prix culture to share the story of and American heiress, a driver of Jewish ancestry, and the challenge to compete against the Nazi-sponsored Mercedes Grand Prix juggernaut. Ed Welburn will describe his efforts to bring the story of a Colored Speedway Association driver to the big screen. Brian Baker from the Automotive Hall of Fame will share recent efforts to seek out the untold stories of automotive history and elevate these individuals for induction into the Hall of Fame. This discussion will cover how museums are having to pivot to seize the opportunity to share many stories that have not been shared because of the change in culture that the early 21st century has presented. Discovering racecars, and stories previously reported only in publications targeting limited communities is part of this discovery process. Finally, we will discuss the little-known pioneers of the automobile in cultures such as the Soviet Union, South Africa, and South America. This promises to be an eye-opening conversation that will challenge us as museums to reconsider the scope of what we preserve and present to our audiences.

Cars, Companies, and Communities

The English West Midlands has historically been the heart of motor manufacturing in the United Kingdom and is still a hub for motor car design and production today. The car factories have had a profound effect on their local communities. Many local people have found jobs with the manufacturers, whilst other businesses have grown up to match. Over the past two decades, the industry has changed more so than ever in its history and the factory landscape has altered to reflect that. What effect has this had on the society around the factories? The disappearance of the central hub of a community goes further than the loss of jobs in the locality. The local area and cross section of lives have been shaped by the presence and growth of the factory – now its closure has created a void. With the help of generous funding from Arts Council England, the British Motor Museum has engaged a Community Historian to work with the communities in the areas around the factories or places where a factory once stood. Over 24 months, the aim is to collect the experiences and recollections of people who live in those communities, whether the factory was their primary livelihood or not. The catalyst will be relevant material from the Museum’s collections. In 2021 the Museum will hold a special exhibition of the social culture around the car factory, based on those recollections and curated with the help of the communities.

The Racing Car as Art and Artifact:  Interpretive Strategies, Visitor Experience, and the Ongoing Struggle for Relevance

Around the world, several museums have treated the racing car as both artifact and work of art. In 1909, F. T. Marinetti declared the racing car as “more beautiful than the Victory of Samothrace” in his Futurist Manifesto. In the 1990s, Marinetti’s claim seemed to be vindicated when the Museum of Modern Art in New York City used Marinetti’s slogan as the centerpiece for an exhibition on Ferrari Formula One cars. Dr. Paul Baxa, (Ave Maria University) will explore the question: to what extent has the automobile, and the racing car in particular, become a work of art? To many, a race car is “cool” and “fast,” and nothing more. However, the race car has limitless potential of which to teach elements of physics, chemistry, and technology to younger generations. As museums face an ongoing struggle for “relevance,” what are some modern strategies automotive museums can employ to provide focused, curriculum-driven historical interpretation in order to increase visitorship? The NASCAR Hall of Fame’s former curator, Dr. Daniel Simone, will discuss these issues. Indeed, museums have a duty to serve their communities as educational institutions. Bryan Gable, Special Collections Coordinator at Revs Institute, also stresses that historic race cars carry stories about their design and purpose. Yet, that is lost if curatorial teams fail to create interpretive strategies in order to engage visitors who are not automotive experts. As museums seek new audiences, how can the race car be repurposed to capture the attention of non-enthusiasts?

Historic Vehicles Do Not Exist in Technical Isolation

A key aim for historic vehicle owners is, among other things, to pass on cultural heritage in a physical form to future generations, while safeguarding a vehicle’s current use and respecting its social and spiritual importance, thereby protecting its intangible aspects. To achieve these goals, we implement measures and activities that are the result of an all-encompassing interdisciplinary decision-making process: documentation and research (historical, artistic, scientific and technical), as well as taking into account the past, the present and the future contexts of the subject. Encouraging people to ‘allow’ themselves to experience this heritage in a reasonable and responsible manner stems from a concern for maintaining an historic vehicle’s contribution to scientific and general human value, as something that previous generations have created and preserved, and that can today be recognized as part of the world’s technical heritage.

Museums from the Media Perspective

Many museums grapple with the need to reach new or existing audiences, or to improve engagement within the museum. However, it’s not often that the museum asks what is actually wanted by the media. In this session, three award-winning journalists will share their ideas on how museums can ask the right questions, define the audience, and understand the needs of the media outlets, to create an overall strategy. By understanding what the media actually wants, museums can develop a strategy that is interconnected and continuously attracts new visitors, retains the old ones, and engages them with what you do. By understanding media needs, museums can better tailor messages and exhibits that broaden the museum’s appeal to new or underserved audiences. This session will focus on the messages needed by both traditional media (such as newspapers, radio, or local TV) and newer media (such as Facebook, Instagram, or others).

Provenance Research for Museum Employees and Their Patrons

The cars in a museum can easily be considered works of art.  The history of how these vehicles were used, bought and sold and physically changed over time is called provenance. An accurate provenance of a vintage car is often used to establish and support the value of the car.  Provenance research is also key for establishing the authenticity of the car. Museum curators should be especially interested in the provenance of the vintage cars in their collections for both legal and historical reasons. Provenance enables a curator to establish a complete story from the day the car left the factory or workshop until it reached its current museum.  Provenance research has traditionally been a slow, painstaking, and expensive process. With the greater attention to provenance research the tools of provenance research are now rapidly evolving. Provenance findings can be cause for great joy. They can also be the expensive end of many hopes and dreams. Attendees will be provided with up to date provenance research resources.

There's an App for That! Creating a Museum Mobile App

Many museums have or will create a mobile app to increase their digital footprint and enable different types of online/digital user engagement and access to their site, collections, and content. This session will cover what an app can do for a museum and its existing and potential audience, various tools and resources needed for a successful app, how to measure this success and return on investment, and the options institutions have for creating an app from development tools to out-of-the box platforms. Particular importance will be placed on the staff resources required, vendor selection, and the role of an app versus other methods of outreach, such as websites and social media.

Accreditation Standards for Auto Museums

Standards are markers of professionalism, foster accountability, and enable good decision-making. While AAM promulgates a set of core standards that are applicable to all types of museums, there are standards, codes of ethics, and professional practices issued by museum associations representing children’s museums, railway museums, art museums, state and local history museums, zoos and aquariums, and academic museums, just to name a few. Plus, there’s the International Council of Museums’ own version as well as general museum standards issued by individual countries. This session will explain how WFFMM and NAAM, if they wanted to set auto museum-specific standards, might start the process and use AAM’s as a guideline and starting point. Drawing on her two-and-a-half decades working with AAM’s accreditation program and similar programs in other countries, AAM’s Senior Director for Standards & Excellence will share insights about the challenges and opportunities for both groups to consider if they wanted to pursue such an endeavor. Some considerations include applicability to a global set of stakeholders, qualitative vs. quantitative, resources to develop and maintain, enforceability, and relationship to membership. After hearing about AAM’s standards philosophy and model, attendees will learn of other discipline-specific standards and HeritageRail Alliance’s recent experience revising its Recommended Practices for Railway Museums. The target audiences for this session are decision-makers, leaders, and influencers from NAAM and WFFMM; and others who might want to be involved in a process of creating standards for auto museums.

In Response to the Swamp: The Relationship Between Automobility and the Everglades

Throughout the United States automobility informed every aspect of twentieth century culture—from how Americans built their cities to what tales became the stuff of urban legend. In Southwest Florida the ubiquity of automobility combined with the uniqueness of the Everglades to create a dynamic wherein the built environment and local subcultures evolved both in spite of and because of the interplay between vehicles and swampland. Leaders from the five local history museums that make up the Collier County Museum Division will share stories of the intrepid visionaries who carved roads through the Everglades to open the area for development and the inventive gearheads who created the swamp buggy—vehicles modified or purpose built specifically to traverse our unusual terrain. We’ll talk about how we present automobility in its specific cultural contexts in Southwest Florida, and how we work collaboratively to tell the smaller stories of Naples, Everglades, Immokalee, and Marco all under the Collier County umbrella.

Combustion, Exhaustion, and the Law: Copyright and the Automobile Museum

This session focuses on the many US copyright issues that automobile museums and libraries need to address. Dr. Crews will define copyright, what materials are protected, the rights of the copyright holder and users, registering works, and length of copyright. Particular focus will be on orphan works, items which are still in copyright but the holder cannot be located. What legal and monetary concerns should a museum consider if it wants to make reproductions available? What steps should a museum follow if it is challenged for a copyright violation? Finally, he will explain the role of the new Copyright Claims Board in settling copyright disputes.

Obsolete Materials in Vehicle Restoration

To preserve, conserve or accurately restore the cars of the early 20th century, we need to understand the materials used in their construction, especially as many of these materials are different than the materials used in automobile construction today. The focus of this presentation is obsolete materials, or materials commonly believed to be obsolete. In particular we will focus on the differences between modern materials and historical materials. We will start from the exterior of the car and move to the interior and mechanical, discussing examples of sheet metal, exterior paints, wood finishes, upholstery, castings and forgings. We will organize our discussion around the following questions: What materials are obsolete? Why were they discontinued? What replaced them? What were the advantages and disadvantages of these materials? What care and maintenance are needed to preserve these original materials? Why is it important to be able to offer them again today? What is needed to use them today? What materials are thought to be obsolete—but aren’t—and why? We will also have samples of obsolete materials for attendees to see and touch.

Close Encounters of the Digital Kind

Museums, libraries, and archives are adapting to an increasingly digital world. Public facing experiences in digital exhibits, apps, virtual reality, and more dominate the landscape, but the digital component goes beyond the user interactives. How are institutions exploring and implementing computing power through machine learning to increase collection accessibility, aid in arrangement and description, and enable new discovery opportunities? The speed of digital progress enables the use of capabilities and programs once reserved for only the largest tech companies for an increasingly larger user base. This paper focuses on how cultural heritage institutions are using machine learning now, future opportunities for utilizing machine learning, and experiences in this digital space. Several real-world examples of projects, tools, services, and lessons learned will drive discussion, with ample opportunity to share additional institutional machine learning experiences.
While machine learning will never solve all problems, opportunities abound to develop new methods for efficiencies and to broaden our capabilities. In our increasingly digital world, museums, libraries, and archives are utilizing the capabilities of computers and machine learning to enhance their collections and expand their reach.

How to Create and Implement an Interpretive Plan in the Real World

Get inspired and take away some interpretive planning tips from this practical session. Our primary example is the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Museum’s 2015 Master Interpretive Plan and its continuing implementation. The 1904 Detroit historic site—where the Model T was developed and first assembled—is a good case study of the need for interpretive planning, how to execute a team planning process using a variety of cost-effective techniques for self-assessment, how to achieve stakeholder buy-in, and how to prioritize ideas for implementation. Experienced interpretive planner Mary Seelhorst takes a variety of approaches to interpretive planning depending on the needs and budgets of the automotive museums and historic sites she works with. Using examples from her projects—including but not limited to Piquette, Mary will discuss the value of interpretive planning, what an interpretive plan should (and could) include, and a variety of strategies for analyzing your site’s current status and imagining its potential. Among Steve Shotwell’s many hats at the Piquette Plant Museum is Implementer-in-Chief. He’s been instrumental in keeping the plan from gathering dust, completing many of the plan’s recommendations while adapting to new circumstances. A major success was finally bringing to life the Secret Experimental Room (where the Model T was developed) after years of research and a couple of false starts prior to the Master Interpretive Plan. Part exhibit and part re-creation, the road to making it happen was paved by the plan which ensured it fit with and enhanced the overall visitor experience.
