There will be approximately 290 vehicles on the show field.

About EyesOn Design and the DIO:

The Theme for EyesOn Design 2014 is: Automotive Designís Influence on Popular Culture

Show date: Sunday, June 15, 2014
Location: Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, 1100 Lake Shore Road, Grosse Pointe Shores, MI

About the Show:
Vehicles are chosen based on the yearís theme by invitation only, and between 200 and 300 vehicles are at the show on Fatherís Day. In addition, EyesOn Design features special exhibitions and concept and production vehicles which debuted during the previous yearís auto show circuit, including ones which were awarded at EyesOn Design at the North American International Auto Show.

EyesOn Design receives its support from both domestic and foreign vehicle manufacturers, as well as automotive suppliers and other loyal companies. Judging is facilitated by active and retired exterior and interior designers from leading automotive and supplier companies.

EyesOn Design was founded in 1987 with the support of design heads of GM, Ford, and Chrysler as an automotive exhibition judged exclusively by automotive designers. Today, we celebrate design with an ever-increasing group of designers, collectors, manufacturers, suppliers, and the general public.

About the cause:
EyesOn Design has raised over $4 million for the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology (DIO), the research arm of the Henry Ford Health System Department of Ophthalmology. The DIO supports the visually impaired and blind of southeastern Michigan and organizes two leading world research congresses. The DIO congresses bring together competing researchers to share their findings, critique each otherís work, and go home with new approaches.

The Eye and The Chip, organized with Harvard Medical School, encourages collaboration between efforts to provide artificial vision to many people who are now blind.

The Eye, The Brain, and The Auto improves our understanding of the relationship between vision and the safe operation of vehicles, in an attempt to reduce fatalities.


The DIO also operates support groups for adults and seniors who are visually impaired.
