NORMAN, OKLA. – Author John Steinbeck, in his 1962 book Travels with Charley: In Search of America, said Americans were defined by “ a burning desire to go, to move, to get under way, anyplace, away from any here … nearly every American hungers to move.” Wanderlust: Travel and American Photography examines the role American highways and interstates have played in the migratory desires of the American people. The new exhibition opens at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art (FJJMA), Friday, June 5, with a special public opening reception at 7 p.m.
