Art Break: Taking To the Road Through William A. Hall’s Car Drawings at Andrew Edlin Gallery

By A. E. Colas, Contributing Writer, October 2, 2017

Art Break says it’s time to hit the open road – but without leaving town and without spending any cash. How? By visiting our gallery choices, of course. Start by picking out your dream ride, courtesy of William A. Hall and his fantastical car drawings. Then begin your trip with Tiffany Chung’s exploration of migrants’ journeys – those who have travel forced upon them because of economic, political, or social reasons. Follow up this sobering exhibit with something a little lighter: an audio tour of New York’s commemorative statues to the migrants and citizens who made our city and country what it is today. Finally, take a drive down one of the longest and most famous roads in the world: the Pan-American Highway. Your guide is Edward Ranney and he’ll show you the section in Peru containing mysterious earthworks created by the ancient Nazcas, an indigenous culture that existed approximately 1500 years ago. Happy trails to you!
