EyesOn Design is one of America’s premier automotive events. Each year, the event attracts members of the transportation design community, collectors, and the general public to celebrate and reflect on design. Vehicles are chosen based on the year’s theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Father’s Day. In addition, EyesOn Design features special exhibitions and concept and production vehicles which debuted during the previous year’s auto show circuit, including ones which were awarded at EyesOn Design at the North American International Auto Show.
EyesOn Design receives its support from both domestic and foreign vehicle manufacturers, as well as automotive suppliers and other loyal companies. Judging is facilitated by active and retired exterior and interior designers from leading automotive and supplier companies. In its twenty-fourth year, EyesOn Design is a benefit for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology, an internationally-recognized non-profit which accelerates the development of “artificial vision” — technology which will one day allow some blind and visually impaired persons to regain the vision to see the world around them, including seeing the designs of automobiles.
One of America’s most magnificent estates, the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan serves as the perfect venue for EyesOn Design. Designed by celebrated landscape designer Jens Jensen, the Ford House grounds beautifully frame the automotive design.
