Details of more than 20 map exhibitions in Chicago this November

March 17. 'Festival of Maps Chicago'.

http://www.festivalo....com/index.html

'Opening November 2, 2007 and continuing into 2008, the Festival of Maps
Chicago is a citywide celebration of humanity's greatest discoveries and
the
maps that record our boldest explorations. More than 25 cultural and
scientific institutions join a unique collaboration that will feature maps,
globes, artifacts and artworks and track the evolving technology of
wayfinding from ancient to modern times.'

Check each of the 'Participating Institutions' for a brief note on their
planned exhibition. This will be a unique extravaganza. Nothing like it has
ever been put together for the history of cartography.
