America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66 – Oct. 8, 2016 – Jan. 7, 2017
Route 66 is emblematic of the American experience. Nearly every aspect of 20th century United States history is reflected in the story of the people and events along the Mother Road. Nearly a hundred years of highway culture can be found on the route that millions of people travel on every year, either in its entirety or in segments.
America’s Road: The Journey of Route 66 takes visitors on a geographical and historical tour of this iconic highway that stretches 2,448 miles and crosses through eight states. The exhibit features stories, artifacts, and images, as well as several inter-actives. America’s Road also features a photo essay created by photographer and author, Russell Olsen, who researched and photographed 75 classic Route 66 service stations, motor courts, cafes, and scenes.
