The Open Road: Photography and the American Road Trip
Now – Sep 3, 2018
The road trip is an enduring symbol in American culture. In the days since cars became widely available, the road stretching over the horizon has represented a sense of possibility and freedom, discovery and escapea place to get lost and find yourself in the process. As photographers have embarked on trips across the United States with the express purpose of making work, they have created some of the most important photographs in the history of the medium. This exhibition traces the rise of road culture in America and looks at photographers on the move across the country and across the century, from the mid 1900s to the present day. Museum members free/ non-members general admission.
