KUOW Weekday: The Arts of Maps (Thursday)

KUOW, based at the University of Washington, hosts its “Weekday” radio program on “The Art of Maps” (9 am pacific) today (Thursday).

Maps tell you more than simply how to get from here to there. Nearly any kind of information can be put into a map. Perhaps that is why cartography is so compelling to artists. What can artists do with maps? What makes maps such a unique art form? Today on “Weekday,” we explore the map as art.

Podcast available as of Friday at the page noted above.
