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.
