March 22 to April 19          Exhibit: Crossroads of Empire: Early Printed Maps of the American Southwest

The Southwest remained a land of mystery long after the rest of the continental United States had been surveyed and recorded on maps.  Crossroads of Empire details the fascinating story of the discovery, exploration, and settlement of the area. This exhibition conveys the romance of maps, the legacy of mapmaking, and the profound influence of early mapmakers on our world today.
