or courts and ot her businesses that thrived in the pre-interstate days along Route 66, goes on exhibit today, Jan. 28, at the National Park Community College library at 101 College, Hot Springs. Rose's models — which include the iconic Roundtop gas station in Sherwood — are detailed right down to the cactus outside the Indian trading post shown above and the broken windows of the gas station at right, and have been recognized nationally, finding their way into the collections of Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon and Bruce Springsteen. 

Rose's work has been shown at the Arkansas Arts Center, which gave him a Delta Award; the American Institute of Architects in New York; Louis K. Meisel Gallery in New York; the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.; the Los Angeles Museum of Miniature, and the National Corvette Museum. He is a winner of the Arkansas Governor’s Award for artists. An example of the mind of the artist can be found in the Arkansas Times' "Big Ideas" cover story, where he suggested a Cold War Museum.

There are 12 models on display at the college library. An open house is set today for 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.
