Reading into "On The Road"

April 25, 2008
In June, the Indianapolis Museum of Art will be showcasing the 120-foot-long scroll on which Jack Kerouac wrote his landmark work "On the Road." My question: Is the scroll itself art or artifact?

The scroll -- famously owned by Jim Irsay -- won't be alone on display. It will be joined by 83 cross-country photographs by Robert Frank, who collected them in the his 1958 book "Les Americains." For more details on the exhibition, click here
