Saratoga Automobile Museum

SARATOGA AUTOMOBILE MUSEUM’S SUMMER EXHIBIT TO FOCUS ON “RENAISSANCE MAN” SAM POSEY

Saratoga Springs, NY A series of eye-catching TV advertisements for Dos Equis beer have featured a man touted as “the most interesting man in the world” without telling you who he is. A strong argument could be made that auto racing and broadcasting icon Sam Posey, subject of the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s Summer 2016 featured exhibit, is more than deserving of that title.

“POSEY: Shifting Through the Creative Life of Sam Posey,” will be subtitled “A journey through racing, art, broadcasting, writing, design and more.” But even a title of that length cannot do justice to the multi-faceted career, interests and skills of the Sharon, Connecticut resident.
