Beyond the Compass Beyond the Square
EXHIBITION DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR
An outdoor, site-specific exhibition in conjunction with the Walters Art Museum’s Maps: Finding Our Place in the World, created and organized by the students of the Maryland Institute College of Art.
Beyond the Compass, Beyond the Square, an exhibition installed in Mount Vernon Place, was conceived and curated by students in MICA’s Exhibition Development Seminar. Inspired by and exploring themes of the Walters Art Museum’s Maps: Finding Our Place in the World, it is a component of Baltimore’s city-wide Festival of Maps. Beyond the Compass, Beyond the Square features contemporary art by 10 emerging MICA artists that is interactive, explores new and abstract ways of understanding historical mapping concepts, and reflects myriad approaches to mapping and way-finding. Tours, lectures, activities, and educational programs for all ages enhance the exhibition experience.
