MONA Exhibit Showcases Lincoln Highway Photos

Posted: Updated:

The Museum of Nebraska Art is highlighting a selection of photographs taken by Wright Morris to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Lincoln Highway.

Morris is a writer known for his autobiographical novels -- many of which depict the Nebraska plains. Eventually, his interest in photography led him to combine his writing and his photos into "photo-texts" that portray Nebraska's history.

The exhibit will run from June 25 until Sept. 8 at the museum.

The photographs, taken between 1941 and 1954, feature glimpses of American life along the Lincoln Highway. They depict areas spanning from Washington, D.C., through Nebraska and on into California.
