Junked car sculpture for the Department of Transportation "Cars of America--Tomorrow" exhibition on the Mall was actually a car of yesterday, and is now a work of art. Smithsonian sculptors James Fisher (Mechanical & Civil Engineering) and Ann Rushforth (Office of Public Affairs) pose with the untitled figure they created from parts of a wrecked car.
