Joslyn, in partnership with Union Pacific Railroad and the Union Pacific Museum, announces the exhibition The Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and the American West in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad. On view Oct 6, 2018–Jan 6, 2019 at Joslyn, the exhibition celebrates the “Meeting of the Rails” at Promontory Summit, Utah, on May 10, 1869, through the photographs and stereographs of Andrew Joseph Russell and Alfred A. Hart. Highlighting the Joslyn installation will be the three original ceremonial railroad spikes that were presented during the festivities that day, reunited for the first time in 150 years.
