Atlanta, GA

SCAD Atlanta, fourth floor, Building C, 1600 Peachtree St.

SCAD presents "American Byway: Selections from U.S. Highway 80," a solo exhibition by SCAD professor and photography chair Rebecca Nolan. This body of work focuses on elements of the bypassed areas of rural America from coast to coast.

Highway 80 is an interstate that was made obsolete by construction of the modern freeway. Subsequently, the townships and various populated areas along this route have been neglected. Nolan’s understated photos capture delicate elements of a time and places passed by, remains of an America seemingly so far gone, yet still so near.

Reception: Thursday, Oct. 2, 7-8 p.m.

Gallery hours: Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
