My name is Anthony Rogers, the son of the late George Rogers - an renowned Detroit Artist and the first black Clay Modeler in automotive history. My father served in the Korea war and graduated from 4 art schools and earned 2 majors in sculpture before becoming the first black clay modeler at Ford Motor Company. Clay Modelers are artist with skill to form a car from a large block of clay after studying the sketch design. The Clay Model is the most important level of the design because the Clay modeler has the freedom to bring the car to life as he see it. My father was part of the all black Ford design team that brought Lee Iacocco's Mustang 2 to life. He was also part of the design team that created the Probe. Although he accomplished many feats as an Clay Modeler, his specialty was Architectural Scale Models. My father worked on many Scale Model projects all over Detroit. Just to educate readers that don't know what a Scale Model is. A
Architectural Scale Model goes through the same design process as the Clay Model car does. First there is a sketch design or blueprint of the building, park, Ect.., and then the Scale Modeler create a physical visual model of the drawn design. My Father, George Rogers, was hired by Ford for the Ford Development Plan as the lone Scale Modeler for the Reniassance Center, downtown Detroit,Michigan, Farelane City, Dearborn, Michigan, and Seattle Expo Center, Spokane, Washington. To learn more about my father go to www.rogersrareartandprints.com. I am the author of 'Detroit Rich Boys by Muscles'. I have made plans to film a documentary and write a book covering my fathers life and career.
