Curator Talk: The Roots of Monozukuri

  • Bruce Meyer Family Gallery 6060 Wilshire Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90036 United States (map)

Nearly two out of every five automobiles on American roads are Japanese makes, a sign of the global reach of Japanese car manufacturers. This was not always the case. The latter half of the twentieth century witnessed the ascendancy of Japanese automakers, and with it the introduction of manufacturing styles that would spread globally along with the cars.

In this talk, Leslie Kendall, curator of the exhibit, will explore the history of Japanese automaking from its infancy to the modern era of Japanese leadership.

Event is free to the public; parking in our garage is $15 for public and $13 for members with member validation. Seating for this event is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Please RSVP to reserve your spot. Light refreshments will be served.
