Leventhal Map Center, discovered the depths of those questions with the help of maps, archeological facts, and images. This free exhibition enchanted nearly 400 years of maps and other objects with an intention to depict how human beings visualize the subterranean landscapes such as water tables, caves, and mines.
Among such magnificent displaying, the maps of thearchaeology of Pompeii and all the modern day assessments of remaining lead and chlorine in the water supply of Mich, Flint were the main highlights of the exhibition. Colorful and complicated images were a reflection of their days and basic concerns of authors desire to balance the natural resources of Native American land and use a sculpture for the creation of the Earth’s geology framework.
