About the Item: The Route 66 photographs date from 1980 to the present. In this photograph, the Conoco sign stretches into the rich blue sky, highlighting the sign even as it is deteriorated. Ferderbar’s goal is to visually preserve the memory of Route 66 for future generations. The photographer’s first trip along Route 66 was in 1947. The artist has said: “My work reflects a melancholic response to the decaying remnants of that once grand route from Chicago to Santa Monica. It appears to me that even as they deteriorate, both the structures and roadways assert a defiant resistance to death. Nevertheless, however, all things do die, and these photographs will provide an abiding tribute to Route 66’s contribution to our nation’s heritage.”
