June 28 marks the opening of a new exhibit at one of Las Vegas' premier family adventure parks, Springs Preserve. In 1946, the popular song "(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66" hit the airwaves, immortalizing the road for decades. Springs Preserve is celebrating the iconic road with its new exhibit, "Next Exit: Route 66." The exhibit showcases how Las Vegas artists Su Limbert, Todd Duane Miller, Andreana Donahue, Justin Favela, and JW Caldwell have interpreted Route 66 using a variety of different mediums.
As the most famous road in American history, Route 66 stretches more than 2,400 miles and crosses eight states. Established on November 11, 1926, the road has since become popularized for connecting “Old America” (the East Coast and Midwest) to “New America” (referred to as the “Sunbelt”).
The exhibit runs through September 15 and is open to the public 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are free for Springs Preserve members. Visit the website for general-admission prices. Discount rates are given for Nevada residents, students, military personnel, and seniors.
