Road Trip: Route 66 is a compilation of memories about the Historic Route 66, about how the Mother Road’s past dialogues with the present, and the adventurous spirits who get their kicks on the road. The exhibit showcases the photography Andy Romanoff and Brian Helder; a 1951 Austin of England Devon; a collective art installation from local artists; along with Route 66 artifacts and information panels.
