The Goldmark Cultural Center’s John H. Milde Gallery will present "Freeway," an exhibition featuring drawing and sculptural works by Hugh DeWitte and Julie Libersat.

The great coliseums and aqueducts that stretched across Europe evidenced Roman power and preeminence. What are our architectural markers? A global symbol of our age is the highway.

Most industrialized people have used and can relate to the interstate. They have become a metaphor for modern life’s hum, with all its achievements and struggles. Massive interchanges tower over huge swaths of land routing cars and trucks across a worldwide network of travel and transportation. But if we look more closely at them, as art, they are complex, ever moving objects. These roads emote emotions.

Road rage when delayed. Anticipation and adventure. Curiosity and exploration. Striving and advancement. Struggle, compulsion. When viewing their construction, strength, complexity, and composition. Ultimately, highways reflect our humanity.

The exhibition will remain on display through May 19.
