If you are interested in the history of the automobile, and you are willing to brave the expected snowstorm in Kansas City, you should set some time aside on Tuesday night for “A Century of Automobility: Exploring America’s Car Culture.” Janet Davidson, PhD, a historian and scholar from the Smithsonian, will be at Kansas City’s Union Station to discuss automotive history and the impact of the automobile on everything from work to play.

Dr. Davidson’s lecture was made possible by Haverty Family Foundation and the Mid-America Regional Council.

You should expect someone from the Smithsonian Museum to know what they’re talking about. The Smithsonian is the world's largest museum and research complex, consisting of 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park and nine research facilities. Even the most hardened automotive expert can certainly learn something from someone with so much expertise and research under their belt.

This event is free, but space is limited. If you would like to attend, be sure to reserve your seats by visiting https://boxoffice.unionstation.org/public/show.asp.
