The National Road, which led thousands of early Hoosier settlers of all cultures westward, cuts across the southern section of Hendricks county. Plainfield, an early Quaker community located on the National Road, saw the establishment of the Islamic Center of North America in 1983.
This particular piece depicts a strip of numbered black highway that stretches across the countryside. Route 40—the old National Road—is set in the sidewalk and oriented parallel to the very road it represents.
