On the theme of historic American road travel through the Midwest and upstate New York into New England, we drove from Chicago, IL to the coast of Maine with stops at artists’ environments along the way. We chronicled the trip as we went on the VINYL AMERICA tumblr, but more narrative/insights will be added to the website as we continue to adventure and chronicle our travels.
