What are the unique ways in which a map communicates to people?
NJCU Galleries is pleased to host a panel discussion in conjunction with simultaneous exhibitions, Maps Everywhere and Mapping Life. The discussion will focus on how maps communicate to various audiences. We’ll learn about the similarities and differences of how each panelist approaches map design to tell a story and present a point of view.
