Maps orient and inform, but they also reveal the values, asethetics, technology and imagination of the people who create them. Join the Witte Museum South Texas Heritage Curator Bruce Shackelford, collector Frank Holcomb and Map Curator Mylynka Cardona , PhD. from the Texas General Land Office for a special presentation inspired by the exhibition Mapping Texas : From Frontier to Lone Star State. Enjoy this stunning collection of rare maps, some never-before displayed, and follow the transformation of Texas from an unexplored frontier to the modern Lone Star State through the eyes of historical cartographers.
