Kris Harzinski, author of From Here to There and founder of the Hand Drawn Maps Association, emailed me today to tell me that my map Timeline is on page 124. This book is being published by Princeton Architectural Press and will be available in September.
"From Here to There celebrates ephemeral documents—usually forgotten or tossed aside after having served their purpose—giving them their due as artifacts representing stories from people's lives around the world. There is the young woman suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis who created maps of the Humira injections on her stomach and thighs to help her remember the sites, and give them time to heal. Or the young boy who imagined a whole country for ants and put it to paper...The maps featured in From Here to There are as varied and touching as the stories they tell." This and more at Amazon.

I was already looking forward to being a visiting artist for Light & Landscape this September...but then today I realized the University of Toledo Center for Visual Arts galleries, the Department of Art, and The Toledo Museum of Art are housed in this building designed by architect Frank Gehry.

"Forgotten and Future Landscapes, sponsored by SoFA Gallery at the Henry Radford Hope School of Fine Art, features billboard images by Megan Abajian, Sage Dawson, Shelley Given, and Max Heller. The landscape is an obvious barometer of environmental health and these projects address the idea of landscape in our immediate surroundings.
