Arts on view
Visitors to the Tang Museums presentation of The Tumultuous Fifties are in for a special bonus: among the vintage artifacts accompanying the New York Times photographs is the original manuscript of Jack Kerouacs On the Road. Taping rolls of teletype paper into a continuous 120-foot scroll, Kerouac typed his seminal beat novel in a virtually uninterrupted three-week marathon in 1951. The scroll was sold at auction last year to Indianapolis Colts owner James Irsay, a rock-and-roll aficionado (and Skidmore parent), who loaned it to the Tang.
Other period items include a 1951 Vincent Black Shadow motorcycle on loan from the Tangs architect, Antoine Predock. The Tumultuous Fifties runs through December 16.
