Details:John Miller is known for his larger-than-life glass sculptures of everyday objects. As a young boy, he spent plenty of time with his father at drive-in and roadside diners. The neon signs, glistening chrome tables, and quintessential American cuisine left a lasting impression on the artist. His current studio, located two blocks from old Route 66, provides Miller with constant artistic inspiration. It is one of the most famous roads in the United States and jammed with the type of diners and other small businesses that Miller experienced as a child. From the 1920s through the 1950s, many diners offered a daily, inexpensive special called the blue plate special. It was a hearty meal that was perfect for travelers on the go or budget-conscious patrons. Although blue plate specials are rare today, for many, including Miller, it is a nostalgic term that conjures fond memories. Featuring a number of Miller’s oversized classics like hot dogs and French fries, this exhibition won’t fill your belly but it will put a smile on your face.
