Oct. 5-Dec. 30

Art Exhibit: Ticket to Ride, Artists, Designers and Western Railways

Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, Nancy Johnston Records Gallery, 555 Elm. Ave.; Norman

Info: Prior to the widespread availability of the automobile, artists experienced and explored the American West by train. By 1930, hundreds of artists and illustrators had enjoyed the railroad experience on the Atchison, Topeka, Santa Fe, Northern and Southern Pacific, Great Northern, Canadian Pacific, Mexican Central and other Western lines. Celebrated image makers of the American West, including Thomas Moran and Maynard Dixon, and less well-known designers and painters alike, courted Western railways for transportation, for sales and for international promotion of their work and interests. At the same time, rail companies sought naturalistic images of Western subjects that could be displayed in ticket offices and hotels, in traveling exhibitions, and reproduced on advertising materials to promote Western travel on their lines. “Ticket to Ride: Artists, Designers and Western Railways” features paintings, studies, posters and graphics that emerged from the parallel relationships between artists and commercial designers with Western rail companies between the late 1880s and early 1930s, which were key decades in passenger travel. The exhibition opens Oct. 5 and closes Dec. 30. The museum is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Admission to the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art is complimentary, thanks to a donation made by The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department.
