The Mapping Arts Project maps cities through places where artists have lived and worked historically. Each city focuses on a specific time period, and connects artists to places where they lived, worked, or visited through maps, archival photographs and documents, and ethnographic and historical narratives. This is an on-going work in progress, and we invite you to participate in building the Mapping Arts Project.

The project was created by artist and cultural anthropologist Lara Stein Pardo, and is run by Blackbird Arts and Research, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to innovative arts and research projects that connect the arts, history, and the public.
