Third Thursday in the Clark Library

Open House

Join us for the last Third Thursday of the 2017-2018 school year as we celebrate maps as art. Maps can be much more than geographic tools, telling us how to get somewhere. Instead, more often than not they become artwork themselves. Come and explore the Clark Library’s collection of artistic maps. We will feature Elaine Wilson’s paintings from Charting the Wolverine, “Europe as a Woman” from Sebastian Münster’s Cosmographia, and much more.

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.” — Thomas Merton

Third Thursday is a monthly open house that showcases the highlights of the Clark Library’s vast collection. These fun, thematic events are open to everyone, offering the community a look at some of our favorite maps and other materials.
