Ever wonder why you’re always waiting for a train at the intersection of Lincoln Way and Duff? Visit the Rail Reality: how the trains made Ames exhibit between now and October 28, 2012 to find out. The exhibit celebrates the 150th anniversary of the Union Pacific Railroad in Ames. The Octagon Center for the Arts provided the space for the exhibit in partnership with the Ames Historical Society.
Rail Reality can be viewed at the Octagon Center for the Arts Main & Sweeney Gallery on the third floor. The exhibit hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-5pm and Saturday and Sunday 1-5pm. In addition, the Octagon Community Gallery is showcasing the Railroad Artwork of Stewart Buck until August 11, 2012. The Community Gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10am-5pm.
Go! writers visited both exhibits this week. Check out our photo album on facebook.
