Looks interesting. Check it out. On display in Belllingham through May 18. Tomorrow's opening reception (4-6 PM) will include a presentation by Green Trail's expert Chuck Kitterman. "Charting the World" is an exhibition that invites visitors on an enchanting journey through the evolution of maps, from traditional cartography to modern digital mapping technologies. This exhibition celebrates the rich history and diverse forms of maps and map-inspired artworks while exploring their enduring significance in shaping our understanding of the world. At the core of “Charting the World” is a selection of rare, old maps, featuring unique masterpieces that illustrate the history of cartography and the artistic beauty of hand-drawn maps. Map-inspired paintings, drawings, and digitally created maps by local artists Chuck Kitterman, Hannah L. Rivers, and David Syre complete the exhibition, providing an overview of the extensive realm of cartography. Additionally, a collection of rare pocket maps, road maps, and books completes this survey, reminding us of how maps as objects evolved with the advancement of urbanism.

"..living on the east side of the Sierra world be ideal - except for harsher winters and the chance of apocalyptic fires burning the whole area." Bosterson, NWHiker's marketing expert
