> DESCRIPTION

Andrew Kapochunas  discusses how maps drawn by cartographers and artists have influenced the human understanding of the world from their inception.  Maps are not static objects, they are ever-changing to reflect the knowledge, beliefs and circumstances of the people who use and create them. “Like many official documents, maps are something we often take at face value -- an essential truth. But as this group of artists demonstrates, maps are far more than simple diagrams or way-finding tools”  The event is free and open to the public.
