Maps are powerful and engaging forms of visual communication. They show us our world, and the myriad smaller places within it. Maps fulfill a multitude of functions, and are used for a variety of purposes. Political maps, railroad maps, geological survey maps, waterway maps; maps are irresistible and invaluable resources for learning about our environment.

Admission to the opening reception and to the exhibit in the Elijah Thomas Gallery is free. The exhibit will be displayed until May 11, Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information call DCHA at 607- 746-3849, email or at
