You Are Here: A Juried Community Art Exhibit 10:00 am
You Are Here: A Juried Community Art Exhibit @ Great Falls Discovery Center
Jan 5 @ 10:00 am – Feb 29 @ 4:00 pm
Work by regional artists in multiple media exploring maps, the significance of place, and movement across boundaries, curated by Exploded View. Where do you live? Where are you from? Where do you dream? How do you find your way? Where are your borders? Do maps lie? During these two months, you may also come upon members of Exploded View working in various corners of the building. This program is supported in part by a grant from the Montague Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.

Maps and Legends 12:00 pm
Maps and Legends @ Great Falls Discovery Center
Feb 20 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Maps and Legends You’ve probably seen a map of the world, a map of your country, and a map of a shopping mall where you were trying to find the food court. But have you ever seen a map where California is an island, where Mars has oceans, or where US states have names like Cascade and Cochise? During this brown-bag lunch learning session in the Great Hall, learn why mapmakers don’t always get things right, and to try making some maps of your own. For teenagers and adults.
