      What makes a map so universally interesting? Is there something hidden, something special, lurking behind those points and polygons? When does a map become art - and how does art influence cartography?

      The GIS Education Center invites you to explore the various intersections between cartography and art at the GIS Education Center's cARTograohy GeoMixer.  Guest speakers include artists keen on maps and cartographers keen on aesthetics. There will be storytellers, D3 creators, artists and designers - mapmakers who explore the dynamic designs of maps which balance both utility and artistry. Each map/art piece and mapmaker/artist has a story to tell. Share in their stories, and add yours to the mix!
