ARLINGTON - "The Road West: Travel Through America" - the summer exhibit at the Central Library at The University of Texas at Arlington - looks at what travelers used to trek across the country, what they saw and how they remembered their trips.

Throughout American history, people have moved westward across the landscape. From early travelers plodding across the plains in wagons and stagecoaches, to modern wanderers racing down paved interstates, people have always required information about where they are going and how they are going to get there.

"The Road West" runs from June 1 to Aug. 8 in the Special Collections Library, on the sixth floor of the Central Library, 702 Planetarium Place. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Hours are 9 a.m-5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. Call 817-272-2179 for more information.


The University of Texas at Arlington is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer.
