Welcome to Maps Everywhere 2.0. This blog was started in 2016, when I was on sabbatical. I traveled in Europe during the 2016-2017 school-year and studied maps. I introduced myself to anyone I met that had anything to do with maps, and all were gracious enough to meet with me to discuss maps. I studied maps at the British Library, held a 12th century mappa mundi, and traveled extensively, which of course, required using maps, both digital and paper.
My original About page will tell you more about my intentions for the sabbatical. I’m happy to say I accomplished all of what was on my list for the year, which included creating this blog and creating a map that now resides in the American Geographical Society Map Library in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In Fall 2019, I curated an exhibition of illustrated maps (named after this blog Maps Everywhere) at New Jersey City University. The show included 12 artists, some were friends, others I approached to ask for work. I hosted events and demonstrations. I created a large cork map of Jersey City to which visitors to the gallery pinned notes. It was a fabulous experience that I would like to repeat.
