GROSSE POINTE SHORES, Mich. -- The 24th annual EyesOn Design car show at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House was a roaring success, with record attendance on Father's Day, and more than 270 vehicles on display.

With its emphasis on automotive design, past, present and future, EyesOn Design is the only show of its kind in the world. Unlike other shows where cars are judged on restoration and / or authenticity, the exterior of each vehicle at EyesOn Design is judged using professional design criteria: emotional appeal, execution, artistic excellence, and design character and continuity.

Additionally, a vehicle’s interior design is also carefully evaluated. Judging criteria include appearance, functionality, use of color and materials, and compatibility with the vehicle’s exterior.

For the majority of awards, judging will be accomplished by individual automotive designers and/or teams of active and retired exterior and interior designers from leading automotive and supplier companies. Driven by a passion for automotive design, these distinguished men and women have generously volunteered their services to EyesOn Design for the benefit of the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology.

Thank you to our sponsors and media supporters for your support!

Save the date for the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Design! EyesOn Design 2012 - Father's Day Sunday, June 17, 2012

The Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization in Grosse Pointe Park, MI, devoted to matters pertaining to vision and the eye.
