An exhibit dedicated to the accomplishments of the late Robert Opron will be held in Amiens France, running from August 24 to October 30, 2021 at the Maison de l’Architecture des Hauts-de-France.
As part of that event, there will be a special tribute to Opron, on Saturday September 4, 2021 at 4.30 pm where a Medal of Honor will be awarded by the mayor of Amiens, Brigitte Fouré, followed by the screening of a film in tribute to Robert Opron. The Maison de l’Architecture des Hauts-de-France will evoke his memory in the presence of his wife Geneviève.
This exhibition is a tribute to a great creative in the field of automotive design, who recently left us. The renowned automotive designer from Amiens, has inspired generations during his career. Most notably in the Citroën community, he led the design team in the refresh of the DS featuring the ‘cat’s eye’ quad headlights behind glass covers, the styling of the GS, SM, CX, Ami 6 station wagon and the Ami 8.
His fifty years of professional investment during which he designed futuristic, popular and prestigious cars with Citroën, Renault and Simca remains a source of inspiration. The exhibition features around sixty drawings, documents and models from the personal archives of Robert Opron, as well as a Citroën M35 prototype on loan from private collector.

Often I say a little thank you to Mr Opron, especially when I see my CX Limousine parked in a certain light, so one can clearly see the two overlapping cheat lines. Brilliant.
