•Add artwork: Affordable artwork is easy to find, you just have to look for it! Check out thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales and auction websites, or create your own by simply framing fabric swatches or enlarging photos for a personal touch.The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum announced in a news release it will have extended hours of operation until 8 p.m. Tuesdays.
