Crystal Bridges needs to find 'The Lost Highway'

Posted By on Fri, Mar 18, 2016 at 12:28 PM



The curators up at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, which is showing great photographs of America by car in its show "The Open Road," and which has scheduled a talk on the significance of Route 66,  seem somehow to have overlooked a body of work that would be a perfect complement to the show: David Malcolm Rose's "The Lost Highway." 

Rose, who lives in Hot Springs, is known all over Arkansas — except for Bentonville, apparently — for his miniatures of yesterday's sights along Route 66: gas stations, motels and other roadside attractions. His collectors include Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins and Bruce Springsteen. "The Lost Highway" has been exhibited at the American Institute of Architects and the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky., and several other venues. 

It's not too late for the museum to gather up some of these models to pair with the show, which runs through May 30. Road trip! Here's a suggestion: Pair Rose's Lion Oil model with Ed Ruscha's "Phillips 66."
