Connecting US 20 is a traveling art event that visited libraries across the country with a goal to increases awareness of local commonalities and differences. Community libraries were the catalyst for linking local writers and art across America’s longest highway, US 20. Sal Strom and Lynn Moyers traveled all of US 20; 3,365 miles through 12 states, finishing on May 31st in Sal’s Pacific Coast home town Newport, Oregon. This project is about community, no matter where that community is located and about linking people together through Art. Colorful cheesecloth was used to create hanging maps of the journey and also converge to highlight local authors in photography. This exhibit is a celebration of art and community.
