The exhibition is a campus and community collaborative effort curated by Rhonda Yeager, Bobbie Zapor, and Laura Krulikowski with support from Exhibition Coordinator James Rickard and the University Museum Board of Directors. The exhibition features maps, artifacts, and art on loan from the Historical and Genealogical Society of Indiana County, IUP Department of Art and Design, IUP Department of Geoscience, the Institute for Mine Mapping, Archival Procedures and Safety (IMAPS), IUP Libraries Special Collections and University Archives, and artists Jacob Wareham and Chuck Olson in addition to pieces from the University Museum’s collection. Wareham and Olson are offering several of their works for sale. The theme of this exhibit focuses on the many ways maps can take form and be used- from the artistic to the utilitarian on earth, underground, and in outer space.
