BALTIMORE'S FESTIVAL OF MAPS

The Baltimore Festival of Maps is a citywide celebration organized by the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance to encourage Baltimore residents and visitors to explore museums, theaters, galleries and educational institutions from March 16 through June 30, 2008, using the Walters Art Museum's exhibition Maps: Finding Our Place in the World as the impetus for their exploration.

Activities in the Baltimore Festival of Maps will range from one-day interactive workshops and demonstrations to performances and rare views of historic documents. The participating organizations focus on a variety of studies and disciplines including art, history, science, music and conservation.
