Family & Friends Sunday: Cartography

June 23, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Come to the Ackland to learn about how maps served the artists of the new exhibition “Way Out West.” Listen to stories about exploration chosen by Chapel Hill Public Library children’s librarians; see maps of the U.S. and meet cartography expert Renee Bosman from UNC Libraries; watch the first of three selections from PBS’ “National Parks” documentary series to glimpse some of the natural wonders featured in the works of “Way Out West”; enjoy exploring the art on view with a themed scavenger hunt and hands-on art-making activities for all ages. Free and open to the public.
