Morton Street Partners and Meyers Manx hosted a buzzy opening of their latest exhibition Winter Surf, an immersive exhibition that explores the inventive spirit of mid-twentieth-century vehicle design and its associations with freedom and adventure. Guests sipped on specialty cocktails and had a first look at vehicles including Steve McQueen’s iconic Meyers Manx dune buggy from The Thomas Crown Affair, a French off-road prototype known as “the Shake” designed by Italian coachbuilders Bertone, a Citroën Méhari, and a 1960s Bultaco motorcycle converted into a snowmobile. Jake Auerbach, Founding Partner of Morton Street Partners, introduced Phillip Sarofim, Chairman of Meyers Manx for brief remarks and shared: “The Meyers Manx has always been a symbol of joy, simplicity and purity. It’s the solution to the complexity of life. Continuing the legacy of the Meyers Manx connects us with the optimism of the 1960’s California culture, an optimism we all can share.” – Phillip Sarofim, Chairman, Meyers Manx.
The event was attended by Phillip Sarofim, Michael Potiker, Hagop Kalaidjian, Jake Auerbach, Tom Hale, Ben Tarlow, Daniel Arsham, Christy Cham, Roxy Bijan, Nicolas Bijan, Dapper Lou, among others.
