Curatorial Spotlight. American Landscape: Rise of the Interstate

About

On the second Sunday of each month, members of our curatorial department will offer unique insights into the different aspects of the Museum through interesting and thought-provoking presentations and demonstrations.

Join us on Sunday, July 11, 2021 for the first of a three-part series looking at how the automobile transformed the American landscape. The first part will focus on the rise of the interstate. Our professional museum staff will deliver a presentation and be on hand to answer all your questions regarding the subject. In 1956, president Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the Federal Aid Highway Act which authorized the construction of 41,000 miles of the interstate highway system. Throughout the presentation we will be looking at the different ways in which the interstate highway system has transformed the American landscape.

This presentation is free to all members of the public with a regular museum admission and will take place in the Education Center at the Museum. For more information please contact the museum by phone at (260) 925-1444 or email at info@automobiemuseum.org.
