Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink...

But plenty to look at in our upcoming Third Thursday! In support of the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts Winter Theme Semester on Water we have pulled out our finest mapped examples of water.
Some of the items that we will be featuring are early charts of the Great Lakes, a 25 ft. long scroll map for navigating the Colorado River, a World War II pilot’s cloth emergency map showing ocean currents, 17th century nautical charts, and some remarkable maps of the Mediterranean Sea . As a special feature we will be previewing MFA student Collin McRae’s short animation “Stitch”. Please join us for this special event in the Hatcher Gallery Thursday February 17, 4:00-7:00 pm. Dont forget this is in the Gallery, not in the Map Library itself, hope to see you!
