Road Trip: a journey through the GW Collection
Start Date: 11/4/2016 All Day
End Date: 1/31/2017


Although the road trip may be a quintessentially ‘American’ idea, people have been making journeys since the beginning of our existence. Increasingly efficient modes of transportation have made long distances possible in shorter amounts of time, but whether by car or by carriage, some experiences remain the same – traveling with a companion, stopping at wayside inns to replenish energy and supplies, the trouble of a flat tire or a sick horse. Capturing this shared human experience is also something that endures: we feel the need to hold onto the journey. This exhibit presents a sample of paintings, drawings, prints and photographs from the GW Collection that represent the quintessential elements of the road trip.

This exhibition complements and was inspired by the Luther W. Brady Art Gallery’s current exhibition Along the Eastern Road: Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido, (thru Dec. 2, 2016) featuring prints made from the drawings Hiroshige completed during his journey along the Tokaido road that connected Edo to Kyoto.

Now through January 31, 2017
