The Mother Road Revisited

Opens Friday, April 5

Let’s travel down the famous Route 66 once more with The Mother Road Revisited: Route Sixty-Six Then and Now, an exhibit of photographs taken along the historic highway stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles by way of Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and the southwest. Photos from the 1950s are paired with photos taken along the route last year by Natalie Slater. Slater shot her images from the same vantage points (or as close as possible) as the originals. The result is a time-jump study of one of America’s most significant byways of culture and society. The exhibit opens with a reception from 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 5, and features a book signing and lecture by author and Route 66 historian Michael Wallis. Exhibit runs through April 25.
