On the road...

There are many wonderful resources and features available at my school, but one of my favorites is the Museum of Contemporary Photography, which is right on campus. Right now, the MoCP has an excellent exhibit featuring one of my favorite photographers, Dorothea Lange. She is best known for her photographs taken during the Great Depression. The exhibit also ties in a celebration of Jack Kerouac's novel, On the Road. Can you believe it's been 50 years since the novel was published?

If you happen to be in the Chicagoland area, you should stop by the MoCP and check out this magnificent exhibit. It is definitely one of the most powerful and moving ones I've ever seen.
