Additional Info

  • Event Title: Interstates of Mind Exhibit
  • Event Date(s): Now through August 8, 2021
  • Event Location: Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University
  • Event Description: InterStates of Mind: Rewriting the Map of the United States in the Age of the Automobile traces the development of the automotive industry and interstate highway system through artworks from the early 1900s to the present. Situated at a crossroads of cultural contradictions, the show unpacks our fascination with the automobile and the different—at times competing—ideals that continue to shape our visions of America today. To accomplish this, the exhibition focuses on artwork from the MSU Broad collection presented alongside archival and other documentary materials to position the works within historical context.
