Column: Sunny Route 66’s darker side seen in exhibit

The Millard Sheets Art Center at the LA County Fair this year is devoted to “Alt 66,” a counterpoint to the happy and charming Route 66 stuff throughout the Fair. This is a darker, edgier exploration of the highway, including racism, trash and gaudy motels. I write about it for Sunday’s column, as well as gathering up some Culture Corner and other items. And remember, the Fair ends today!
