Crossing Boundaries: Art // Maps

Saturday, June 9th, 2018 - Saturday, April 20th, 2019

When the imaginative journeys of contemporary artists incorporate elements from a cartographer’s toolkit, these borrowings can add narrative, semi-narrative or abstract depth to a work of art. To offer comparison and commentary to encourage exploration of each artwork, maps from several centuries have been selected from the collection of the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library. Our intention in presenting these juxtapositions is to cross the traditional boundaries of art and cartography to stimulate fresh appreciation of both media.
