Launched in 2016, The Automobile Gallery occupies a building that was home to Denil Cadillac, a historic and prestigious Green Bay dealership between 1958 and 1997.
The once gleaming, state-of-the-art dealership building was briefly used as a municipal storage garage. It then sat empty and abandoned for nearly two decades until William “Red” Lewis, a Green Bay native and innovative entrepreneur, was inspired to convert the deteriorating building into a gallery for automobiles that integrated event and meeting spaces.
With his vision in mind, Somerville Architects & Engineers of Green Bay breathed new life into the building, preserving the facade of the dealership while creating a graceful, contemporary gallery and event space.
Many of the automobiles themselves have come from a private collection, but most of them have been donated to The Automobile Gallery, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the enjoyment and enrichment of its visitors and the community.

The Automobile Gallery mission is to build an appreciation for the automobile as art — to educate, inspire and share that passion with others so they too can truly appreciate the form and function of the automobile — past, present and into the future.
