US 12 Photo Art

Photography Display of US 12 at the Clinton Library
The Clinton Township Public Library is pleased to offer a photographic history of US 12 created by Gwendolyn Day and Greg Feight.  In cooperation with the Historical Society of Clinton, the library will hold an open house on Wednesday, June 6 between 4 and 6 pm.  The artists have traveled many miles on this historic road and hope to inspire others to slow down, take a less traveled road and enjoy the scenery.
This photographic exhibit is focused on the highway called US-12 as it meanders across the southern counties of Michigan.  US-12 originates in Detroit and extends to Chicago.  Between these two large cities is the story of Michigan.  Along this road you will find the diversity of Michigan:  large industrial cities, small agricultural towns, farm fields, manufacturing sites, large churches, small churches, and roadside produce stands.  One room country schools, roadside parks, and historic hotels blend the past with the present.  You will see many different fields showing Michigan’s agriculture, fishing holes tourist lakes, fancy restaurants, and truck stops.  Historic cemeteries dot the roadsides - the final resting place of our pioneer forefathers.
The exhibit will be on display at the library though the month of August at the Clinton Township Public Library, 100 Brown St., Clinton, MI.
