The Automotive Fine Arts Society announced this week that it has once again chosen The Lincoln Motor Company to be the sponsor of its upcoming art show at the legendary Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Lincoln has served as the sponsor of the art show, which enters its 31st year in 2016, for 20 years. The event will take place on the 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links, and it will feature automotive-inspired art rendered in just about every medium imaginable.
“Lincoln has been our partner for two decades and has helped create a truly one-of-a-kind art show at the country’s most renowned automotive event,” said Ken Eberts, Automotive Fine Arts Society president. “Their patronage has helped heighten awareness of automotive fine art across the globe and vault our members to the forefront of the genre. We’re pleased to enter another Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with Lincoln as a valued partner who underscores the value and prestige of this event.”
