Show Description

Stashed in the glove compartments of our cars, scrolled through on our phones, hanging on classroom walls, or glowing at metro stations, are maps. They tell us where to go, what to expect, and help us interpret geography. Geography, however, is unruly; time, context, and power shape all maps. Coastlines are altered by rising sea levels, lands are “discovered,” boundaries are disputed and conquered, and cultures are created or erased.

This exhibit is engaging for all age groups. Works from this exhibit were generously loaned by the Dr. Ernst F. Tonsing Collection.
