Route 66: Photo Blog / Radiance, Rust & Revival on the Mother Road

Conceived in honor of the 90th anniversary of Route 66, this exhibition explores the art history and popular culture of the iconic Mother Road. From her hotly debated beginnings to her decades-long role as a pathway for adventurers, migrant workers post-war veterans, tourists, hippies and sentimental souls, Route 66 has fascinated and engaged us, and compelled us to follow her beaten, crumbling path. The exhibition explores the history of route 66 in New Mexico and the Albuquerque area, set in the context of significant events of national importance and enhanced by personal stories from Albuquerque area residents.
