How many of you out there would love to own a classic Mustang? You can’t see it, but my hand is touching the ceiling. Okay, Macomb can’t put us in that bucket seat but it can give us the backstory on the original “pony” car while making a convincing case for the incredible staying power of clay modeling.
Don’t know what clay modeling is? I didn’t either until I learned that industries like those that make cars and movies continue to use this sculpting technique to create 3-D models before they are introduced to the public – like a Mustang or Millennium Falcon. If you are interested in cars, computers and the creative process, then you don’t want to miss “Modeling the Mustang: Hands-On Lessons for the Digital Age,” a free event that begins at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 11, in Building S, Room 101, on Macomb’s South Campus.
Giuliano Zuccato, one of six clay modelers to sculpt the iconic Mustang body, will talk about the thrill of bringing it to life inside a Ford design studio. You will also learn about the growing digital sculpting field from auto industry experts and about Macomb’s new Digital Sculptor Certificate and Associate Degree Program.

I heard a rumor that there may be a classic Mustang there. Although Star War fans may disagree, I say that beats a Millennium Falcon any day! What do you think?
