Experience history and nostalgia through art in the Historic Route 66 exhibition

The McLean County Arts Center in Bloomington, Illinois is thrilled to present Route 66, a juried art exhibition to celebrate the rich and complex history of one of America's original highways.

U.S. Highway 66, or Route 66, was a transportation artery stretching 2400 miles that brought change and social transformation from the shores of Lake Michigan to the coast of the Pacific Ocean. This exhibition aims to take a closer look at this now-decommissioned highway's storied past, and its connections to the present. 

2D and 3D interpretations in any media, abstract or representational, are welcomed. 

Accepted artworks will be exhibited in our Brandt Gallery from July 5-August 24, 2024. One artwork will be awarded $500 for Best in Show. Entries will be juried by the McLean County Art Center's Exhibition Committee, chaired by Doug Johnson.

Submission is $10.00.
