Family Day: Mapping the Natural World
October 22, 2011
Before cameras, GPS systems, and wristwatches, how did people record what they saw? navigate their journeys? tell time? The exhibition Prints and the Pursuit of Knowledge shows us how scientists and artists of the 16th century worked together—making books about animals and the human body, maps of land and sky, and sundials and other instruments—and shaped the way people understood their world. Activities will include gallery explorations and art-making experiences.
Recommended for children ages 8 and up.
Free admission. Space is limited. For more information, please contact Erin Loeb at 617-496-8576 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
