ATLANTA (AP) – Atlanta’s High Museum of Art is extending a popular exhibition that explores the golden age of automobile design.

“The Allure of the Automobile” was set to close June 20 but will now run an extra week, through June 27.

The exhibit features 20 rare cars dating from the 1930s to the mid-1960s. They include cars made by Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz, Bentley, Porsche, Cadillac, Corvette, Jaguar, and Aston Martin.

In addition to adding a week to the exhibition’s schedule, the High is also adding special programming and extended hours.

It is the first time the High has extended an exhibition beyond its originally scheduled close date.
