Maps can be used to get you get from point A to point B, but maps can also be used creatively to capture memories, explore personal histories and create narratives. The design of every map, whether printed or digital, is imbued with characteristics that tell us about a place, and even the person who made the map. The line work, the typefaces, the colors and quality of the work are all clues to the message of the map. What is left off the map is just as important as what has been included.

The works exhibited have been chosen for their visual and illustrative qualities, and will challenge the viewer to redefine the influence which maps have in their lives. The twelve featured artists will be Charlie Ahearn, Connie Brown, Jacob Ford, Keith Godard, Abby Goldstein, Jennifer Maravillas, David Nuttall, Adrienne Ottenberg, Kingsley Parker, Viviane Rombaldi Seppey, Jan Rothuizen, and Robert Sikoryak.

The exhibition will include a large interactive map of Jersey City, on which visitors are invited to “pin” their stories and memories to their associated locations.

Maps Everywhere is presented in conjunction with Mapping Life in the The Harold B. Lemmerman Gallery at NJCU.
