I had the pleasure this week of attending the opening of a pop-up exhibit of Glenn Hansen's Time Well Spent photo exhibit at the McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage. Glenn is former president of the College of DuPage Faculty Association and photography professor. The exhibition closes Saturday, and he has a gallery talk at 1 p.m. If you are in the area, I encourage you to see this wonderful display of 40 years of work.
I was particularly inspired by the portion of the collection he titled View from the Shoulder, of images of the Western U.S. from the roadside. It made me want to get on the road out west. He's got a few of those posted in the High Plains page on his website www.glennhansen.com. Even better, see the prints!
Here are some of my stops along the road.
If you see this place while driving on Route 54 in New Mexico, stop across the street for a Green Chili Burger . . . and a cold beer.
