Photo-eye Book­store and Project Space, 376-A Gar­cia St., 505-988-5152 The ex­hi­bi­tion Amer­i­can Mo­tel Signs by pho­tog­ra­pher Steve Fitch con­tin­ues through Feb. 18. Fitch seeks out retro signs ad­ver­tis­ing mo­tels across the coun­try, a project he’s been en­gaged in since the 1980s. His images re­call mid­cen­tury Amer­ica, and the road cul­ture that forms part of the fab­ric of Amer­i­can life. The ex­hibit is shown in con­junc­tion with the re­lease of Fitch’s new mono­graph Amer­i­can Mo­tel Signs 1980-2008, pub­lished by The Vel­vet Cell.
