MissouriRoadside Attraction

The Hubcaps on Route 66 Sculpture in Springfield, Missouri pays homage to the city’s place as the “Birthplace of Route 66”  in a unique way.

The Hubcaps on Route 66 Sculpture was created by Joe and Terry Malesky of New Adventure Sculptures LLC. It was installed at the Northeast corner of Broadway Ave and College St on September 22, 2020, as part of Sculpture Walk Springfield, the city’s “museum without walls” that places permanent and temporary works of art around the city.

The stainless steel sculpture features two giant sixes (“66”) adorned with a variety of hubcaps. It was meant to capture the memories that all the hubcaps on all the cars might have seen while traveling on Route 66.
