Mapping in the Arts event in Durango, Colorado

I received an email from the organizers about an event in Durango (which is in the very scenic southwestern corner of Colorado, for those who may not know it) on Mapping in the Arts: Ways of Seeing. It will take place on September 7-9, and is described as an event for people who love art, writing and the land, with thought-provoking presentations and workshops on how:

• maps inspire the artistic process
• mapping is used as a metaphor for discovery
• maps shaped the history of the West
• maps change the way we view the world
• mapping is a tool for envisioning a sustainable society
