March 24, 2014

Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

For twenty years, Connie Brown has painted custom maps for clients—individuals, organizations, and companies.  Each map presents cartographic and aesthetic challenges.  She has mapped private properties, favorite places, exotic travels, family genealogies and diasporas, life histories, school campuses, and environmental /historical regions. In this illustrated lecture the audience sees examples of her maps, hears their backstories, and learns how a painter-cum-cartographer combines 21st century geography with traditional manuscript map-making methods.
