Road Trip: America Through the Windshield
Brattleboro Museum and Art Center
June 27 — October 26, 2014
Brouws' Storage Units, 2002-2011 will be exhibited at the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center beginning late June. The museum writes:
Since ancient times, depicting the landscape has been a way for artists to explore the relationship between nature and humankind. In recent times, that relationship has often been experienced by car, as part of a daily commute or an epic Kerouacian journey. Through imagery ranging from urban street scenes, in which billboards and stoplights replace trees and mountains, to national parks and highway tourist attractions, the artists in this exhibit explore the ways in which the road has transformed our relationship to the American landscape.
