Road Trip! Revelry

November 19, 2016
Members’ First Look 5-6
Party 6-8:30

Road Trip! is a lively exploration of America’s love for traveling by car, and an entertaining tribute to the kitsch and the creativity of roadside architecture.

To celebrate the opening of this exhibition, we’re throwing a party! Be the first to see Road Trip! with an evening of music, food, and fun. Hear DJ Dave Coon spin records for the road while enjoying diner-inspired apps, drinks and treats. Spice Catering Group will capture America’s regional roadside food traditions. (Save room — there’s pie!) Plus, Ray Andrewsen of AM1220 WQUN will lead travel trivia and car games.

Members are invited to an exclusive first look and cocktail before the party with renowned architectural historian and Road Trip author Richard Longstreth, whose photographs of iconic diners, gas stations, motels, and roadside attractions are featured in the show. (Not yet a member? Join now.)
