Mapping: Cartographies of Learning

at Columbia College Chicago's C33 Gallery
June 26 - August 8, 2008

As part of the City of Chicago’s Festival of Maps, Mapping: Cartographies of Learning showcases multi-media arts installations from Columbia College Chicago’s Center for Community Arts Partnerships (CCAP) Project AIM, and the Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education (CAPE). This free exhibition is on view at Columbia College Chicago’s C33 Gallery at 33 East Congress. Mapping is a culmination of curricular and conceptual explorations of mapmaking from students in nine Chicago Public Schools (kindergarten through high school). The installations, directed by professional artists and teachers, feature compelling social and cultural histories as well as visionary images of students’ sense of place in their neighborhoods and the world. An opening reception at the gallery will be held on Thursday, June 25 from 5 – 7pm. For more information, please contact Betsy Odom, [C]Spaces Exhibition Coordinator at 312.344.8177.
