After World War II, the American road trip began appearing prominently in literature, music, movies, and photography. "The Open Road" considers the photographic road trip as a genre in and of itself. The exhibition presents the story of photographers for whom the American road was muse. Presented in chronological order, the featured artists and road trips represent the evolution of American car culture, the idea of the open road, and how photographers embraced the subject of America in order to reflect on place, time, and self.

The exhibit will be on display through January 7.
