 Route 66: Radiance, Rust and Revival on the 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 Albuquerque Museum’s exhibit, Route 66: Radiance, Rust, and Revival on the Mother Road, explores the story 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’s residents. Deborah Slaney, Curator of History at the aM, will present highlights from the exhibition which will open the following week, on May 14.

The Exhibit

May 14, 2016 to Oct 2, 2016
Conceived in honor of the 90thh anniversary of Route 66, this exhibition celebrates the art, history and popular culture of the iconic Mother Road.
Too often the history of Route 66 in Albuquerque has been overlooked, even though our city sits at the center of the Southwestern leg of the route and boasts, at 16 miles, the longest single-city urban stretch of the highway in the nation. We are also the only place on the Mother Road where the highway crosses itself! Indeed the very re-routing of Route 66 to the east-west alignment was a political scandal, but shaved time and miles off the odometers of road-weary travelers and their automobiles.

Hope to see you August 4 at a new venue!

  1. I am glad that I finally got a chance to check out this place. Great views, food at event space NYC is nice. The quality of service was great, and the environment were pretty comfortable. I’ll say I will look forward to visit again.
