With 2019 marking both the centennial (1919-2019) of the creation of Grand Canyon National Park and the sesquicentennial (1869-2019) of John Wesley Powell's legendary expedition through the canyons of the Colorado River, it's a great time to support Grand Canyon art, science, and community. Celebrate with us!

Special thanks

The Mapping Grand Canyon Conference originated as a component of a larger research project supported through an ASU Institute for Humanities Research (IHR) seed grant: Mapping Grand Canyon: A Critical Cartographic History. Special gratitude is owed to the ASU IHR, which provided the initial scholarly momentum and financial support to make this event a reality.
