Mapping the Cosmos

Visit the maps exhibition website →

Scheduled to coincide with Maps: Finding Our Place in the World, this focus show will present images of the universe taken by the Hubble Space Telescope. Hubble images have been instrumental in discovering new facts about the cosmos and in tracking its evolutionary history over billions of years. These panoramas of time and space are “maps” of scientific data, but they are also aesthetic objects of striking power and beauty.  Organized in collaboration with the Space Telescope Science Institute, this exhibition is the first joint venture with The Johns Hopkins University’s Program in Museums and Society. Mapping the Cosmos: Images from the Hubble Space Telescope is organized by the Walters Art Museum, the Space Telescope Science Institute, and The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences of The Johns Hopkins University. Contributing support has been provided by Constellation Energy.

Baltimore will host a Festival of Maps in conjunction with the Walters' maps show.
