Place and Space is the product of a five-year collaboration between the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. School of Art students take maps that have been withdrawn from the library's collection and create unique and innovative artwork with them. Twenty-three pieces are on display through November 26.

To celebrate the fifth exhibit, the Map and Geospatial Hub will be hosting an opening reception on Thursday, Nov. 8, 4:00-6:00 p.m.  All are welcome.

ASU Now recently featured an article on the exhibit describing the collaboration in more detail. Read more here.

You can also view artwork from previous years in the Creative Cartography Library Guide.
