Juried by Katherine Harmon, author of one of my favorite books “You Are Here, Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination”!

“There has always been a mapping impulse in human consciousness. The map is the quintessential tool for charting human progress, collective knowledge, and personal experience. Maps establish boundaries and meanings. They are a source of discovery and use a specific language. They also provide windows into the unknown.”


“Artists chart singular perceptions rather than assert any collective truth.” (Katharine Harmon) The artist map conveys personal territory, calling out to viewers, “I Am Here”. Art maps can be used for exploration of the personal, the political, or as a tool to investigate the experimental. Mapping as Source focuses on the many ways artists use or create maps for personal expression.”
