Our American History Museum’s America on the Move exhibit lets you walk along a portion of Route 66 pavement. Hardcover; 240 pages; 714 color and 92 black and white photos. 9.56" x 11.2"
We know it when we see it. It’s casually rustic, earthen-hued and sun-baked. It’s often accented with turquoise—weaving its way in geometric textiles or inlaying sterling silver jewelry. These beautiful products are direct representations of the style that is curated, piece by piece, in the collections of our National Museums of the American Indian and American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
