Everyone goes to diners! They're easy to spot--gleaming stainless steel and colorful porcelain enamel. Their glowing neon DINER signals a buzz of activity -- burgers sizzling, milkshakes mixing, crockery clinking and waitresses dishing out everything from waffles to wisecracks. 'Counter Culture' celebrates the diner as an icon of America's culture, and examines the hold it continues to have on your psyches and appetites. The exhibition will include the diner experience and the people who go to them through furniture and food-related accessories, photo murals, paintings, sculpture, photography and oral histories, as well as diner imagery and ephemera that place it within a broader cultural sweep.
