Hit the Road With the Smithsonian's American Art Road Trip

Click on the image to see the full collage; image credits below the jump.

The Smithsonian American Art Museum just put out a cool summer road-trip package on Flickr, in which it’s encouraging travelers to contribute vacation snaps that map to 22 iconic canvasses from the museum’s collection. Landmarks include Niagara Falls, as painted by George Inness in 1885, and San Francisco Bay, depicted in a 1934 oil by Ray Strong. Just goes to show, the classics are timeless for a reason. Enjoy our tribute to the program above, with images from the library of travel photography. Enjoy, and happy travels this summer!
