A tribute to The Mother Road

October 2, 2013 § Leave a comment

IMG_1515This is the second year that Tom and Carol DeBartolo of Schaumburg have been Subscribers at Metropolis. This year, the Metropolis Subscription Series kicks off with the jukebox musical Route 66 – and Tom and Carol were particularly excited for this show. As it turns out, Carol likes to decorate the DeBartolo garage with a theme. The latest theme: Route 66.

Carol just had to let us know of the coincidence and she was kind enough to share some photos of her newly redecorated garage. (See more below)

Previously, Carol had created a sunny skied beach, complete with sand, in the garage. But she said it was looking “tired” and they needed a change.

“I thought, what better than Route 66 for a decorated garage,” Carol said. “There are hand drawn caricatures, Route 66 memorabilia, photos of Route 66 destinations, and photos of all the cars we’ve ever owned.”

Tom and Carol also raved about Metropolis’ production of Route 66, noting that they really enjoyed the show, especially the music.

Looking for even more Route 66 memories? Come see the show (running through October 20) or stop by our lobby to check out our new visual arts display featuring photographs from along Route 66 by David Kay Images, Ltd.
