Route 66 Transitions, 1981–1991: Jerry McClanahan’s First Decade of Route 66 Photography exhibit opens
On Saturday, July 9, 2022, following the Oklahoma Route 66 Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum will open the exhibit Route 66 Transitions, 1981–1991: Jerry McClanahan’s First Decade of Route 66 Photography.
McClanahan is a noted Route 66 authority, artist, and photographer. He first began photographing and mapping US 66 in 1981, on a trip from Texas back to visit his boyhood home in Southern California. Over a period of 10 years, Jerry captured many lost and forgotten scenes during this decade of decline and revival, some of which are presented in this exhibit for the first time.
