Credited as one of the most unique Classic and Vintage Car Museums in the World, The Murphy Automotive Museum isn’t sitting on their hands as May 11th at 6pm will bring the world’s first Nostalgic Automotive Art Museum called THE FIREBALL GALLERY.

The Murphy owner, David Neel, has partnered with Hollywood Car Designer Fireball Tim Lawrence as Director of the Gallery itself as well as Chief Designer for the remodel of the Murphy. A venture that will be revealing multiple ecosystems for the unique groupings of Classic and Vintage Cars that pepper throughout the museum. And it’s spectacular…

The new Fireball Gallery will feature 6 Automotive Artists in the categories of Illustration, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Pinstriping. GALLERY ONE, which launches the evening of May 11th, will include Photographer Wes Nielsen, Painter/Illustrators Chris Garcia and Geoff Ombao, Street Art Sculptors Bohemia Incorporated and a featured Artist, Master Pintsriper Johnny Martinez.

“This has been a long time coming,” says Fireball. “Now is the time to celebrate the creative prowess of the Automotive Artist. These are the men and women that bring automotive beauty to this world and with the help of the Murphy, will change the face of Car Culture.”

The Gallery is already booked 1 year ahead with the likes of celebrity sculptors like TONY DOW (Wally from Leave it to Beaver), famed car design Mark Stehrenberger and Art Center College of Design veteran instructor Richard Pietruska. Each showing will run a 3-month cycle with 6 new artists.

“The Fireball Gallery will be a convergence of established talent and aspiring talent on display for the public to enjoy while giving exposure to the artist, under the curated direction of Fireball Tim,” says David Neel. “May 11th cannot come soon enough.”
