This dynamic art exhibition is a collaboration between the School of Art and the ASU Library Map and Geospatial Hub. Students in the Art on Paper course investigated different types of maps and their functions. Using vintage topographic and geological maps originally withdrawn from the library collections, students repurposed the maps to create original 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional art pieces with a Search and Discover theme. This is the 8th year for this exciting creative cartography collaboration.
The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
