Map of the Week 113-L(a)titudes Exhibit

Tonight is the opening reception for L(a)titudes - a multimedia exhibit at the Washington DC Jewish Community Center where artists "explore mapping borders and boundaries of Israel and Palestine". Among the artists featured is MOTW fan favorite Nikolas Schiller who made this map quilt from a CIA map of Israel - the image on the right is zoomed in.

Unfortunately the JCC web site does not provide much information about the artists so I had to do some digging to find other materials such as the map below from Karey Kessler. I guess you just have to go to find out more. The exhibit will be open until June 2nd so if you're in the neighborhood it's probably worth a visit.

Sweet! If I needed another project, I'd index map-based online art. However, new projects are right out, currently....
