    GOING PLACES
    Explore early 19th-century travel
    Through January 7, 2008


    Catch this wonderful exhibit before Going Places is GONE!

    GOING PLACES has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to El Paso by Mid-America Arts Alliance. GOING PLACES was organized by The Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages in Stony Brook, New York.

    Wagons, vans, buggies and carriages once ruled the road. These forerunners of modern trucks and cars were absolutely essential to American life in the 1800s. GOING PLACES explores the culture, evolution and eventual demise of horse-drawn transportation from the early 19th Century through the widespread use of the Model T. Along the way, examples of these vehicles and their equipment have been preserved, including the pony surrey, harness, and other items found in this exhibit. These artifacts speak volumes about our insatiable desire for travel, speed and new technology.
