In this 2008 photo released by the Hammer Museum showing artist Ed Ruscha poses for a portrait at his Venice, Calif. studio. Fifty years after Jack Kerouac rolled a 120-foot scroll of paper into his typewriter and set American literature on its ear with On the Road, a melodic, stream-of-consciousness meditation on America, Ed Ruscha brings a new interpretation to the work, through paintings and photographs. Ed Ruscha: On the Road which opens at the Hammer museum in June, provides a visual translation of the words Kerouac set to paper as he criss-crossed the country in search of post-war America's soul.
