Press release

The American Road is edged with a trove of treasures just waiting to be discovered. Built to frame vast expanses of nature that are now diminishing, today it encapsulates urban sprawl, architectural calamities, the marketing of small towns through odd commercial landmarks, natural disaster and artistic endeavors. Depending on where you stand, your photograph can become a social or political comment and can evoke an array of emotions, from the comedic or quirky and bizarre to the horrific and sensational. At what point along the way are we driven to stop so as to observe, remember, document, participate or investigate?

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven presents Roadside Attractions, a traveling exhibition of contemporary photographs by seventeen regional artists, curated by Suzan Shutan, on view at the Small Space Gallery from Feb. 5β€”Mar. 16, 2007 and at Kehler Liddell Gallery from Feb. 3β€”25, 2007.
