“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science.”
Albert Einstein (From Living Philosophies, Simon and Schuster, New York, 1931)

People have always been inventive and creative problem solvers who have used myths, maps and legends to aid in navigating the world and all its mysteries. The artists in this exhibition follow in the footsteps of ancient map makers and storytellers by sharing their own narratives about making sense of the world around us.
