We are excited to return to the automobile barn at Heritage Museum & Gardens for this exciting program of George Walker, Copland, Beethoven, and a world premiere by composer-in-residence Cody Forrest.
The auto collection was originally assembled by Heritage’s founder, Josiah Kirby Lilly III. His father, J.K. Lilly Jr., amassed world-class collections of gold coins, rare books, stamps, firearms, and more. J.K. Lilly III did not catch the collecting “bug” until March of 1964.
His collection grew quickly. “For me the purchase of one antique car was the beginning of the search for more. After I picked up a few cars, people started to find me!” he reminisced. Over the next three years his collection expanded as quickly as funds and garage space would allow. We look forwarded to returning to Heritage in his reflective and fun program.
