America has been a nation in motion with an autobiography crafted by millions who have taken journeys, both “voluntary and involuntary,” from foot to steam boats. Journey Stories, a traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibit at the Highlands Museum of the Arts in Sebring, captures some of these voyages. The exhibit also explores the history of American travel and the innovation in trains, automobiles and ships that made it all possible. Through pictures, sound clips, music, maps and storyboards, the exhibit “brings to life the personal paths of immigrants, slaves, explorers, business tycoons and historical figures whose travels have led from the Mayflower to the Golden State.” It runs through Jan. 19.
