Exhibit at the Metropolitan museum this month. I suspect some of the members of this group might have to restrain their natural impulse to correct mapping errors. ;-)



Three Hundred Years of Philippine Maps 1598-1898
JUN. 27 - JUL. 31, 2012 @ Tall Galleries

A unique exhibition of 134 original Philippine Maps dating from the Spanish colonial period to early American time. The show features maps of Petrus Kaerius, J.N. Metellus, Wytfliet, Bertius and Fr. Pedro Murillo Velarde's 18th century Mapa de las Islas Filipinas.

Lectures will be held in relation to the cartography of provinces in the Philippines and the beauty and significance of mapping in contemporary art.

The exhibition is in celebration of Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day and in partnership with Philippine Map Collectors Society (PHIMCOS) and Embassy of Spain in the Philippines.


Exploring the world of map-making can be overwhelming.
