The Mapmakers’ Art: Exhibition in Myrtle Beach

The Mapmakers’ Art: The Bishop Collection of Antique Maps, 1608-1863 is an exhibition running at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, until March 20. “The collection of 15 maps, donated to the museum in 1999, reflects a centuries-ago golden age of cartography, when cities such as Amsterdam, Florence, London, Paris and Venice were mapmaking hotbeds,” The Sun News reports. “The collection, complemented by prints from that era, includes ‘An Accurate Map of North and South Carolina’ by Henry Mouzon, in a copperplate engraving of four joined sheets from 1775.” See also Artdaily.org.
