Pusey Library, Harvard Yard, Cambridge, Mass.
Fri., Sep. 22, 2017, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Whether made in surveying land, fighting wars, learning geography, planning cities, preparing for publication, or presenting beautiful maps to the public, manuscript maps all emphasize the process by which they came into being and the individual stories they carry with them. This exhibition highlights the process of mapmaking by looking at maps drawn by hand. On view in Pusey Library, weekdays, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., through Sept. 27.
