Two automotive clay modelers from the Ford Design Center – including a University of Louisiana at Lafayette graduate – will discuss and demonstrate their craft as part of Design Week activities in the School of Architecture and Design.
Ford will deliver about a thousand pounds of clay for the demonstrations. The automotive manufacturer will also provide models of a Mustang and F-150 truck. They are 4:10 scale, about two-fifths the size of the full-size replicas produced at the design center in Dearborn, Michigan.
The unfinished replicas will be completed once they arrive at UL Lafayette. They’ll be displayed alongside a 2017 Mustang and a Ford Raptor truck provided for exhibition by Hub City Ford in Lafayette. Members of the Ford and Mustang Club of Acadiana will showcase classic cars at the event, as well.
