From colonial impressions of the Chesapeake Bay to detailed city plans for guiding Baltimore's rapid expansion, this exhibition features over thirty of the most stunning and historically significant maps of Maryland from the collection of the late businessman, philanthropist, and Johns Hopkins alumnus Willard Hackerman. The maps are brought together with related rare books and prints, ephemera, and digital story maps to reveal the passion of a collector, the early mapping of Maryland, and the potential of combining historical maps with modern data to re-examine the past.

Isolated in a sprawling manor in 19th century England, a governess is hired to watch a precocious young brother and sister in this haunting adaptation of Henry James’ classic novella. Though the governess bonds with the children at first, she quickly begins to suspect something is wrong when she sees the grotesque figures of the former governess and caretaker of the manor — both a whom are supposedly deceased. Is she seeing actual ghosts, or merely figments of her imagination?

During our walk we will highlight the way species, water and energy move through the landscape. During this event, people will be exposed to ecological patterns and processes often overlooked or unseen. We will begin concentrating on nested scales and connections between things that happen locally, experiencing how macro emerges from micro and micro is shaped by the macro. Attention to urban stream headwaters, native plants and animals (i.e. yellow-crowned night herons) that survive and thrive in cities will bring this into view.

In this talk, Dan Bailey considers human scale, perception, and natural landscape, which are central to his current work on long-duration photography of landscapes and a reconstruction of Baltimore’s geographic past. Seemingly disparate, his two projects, Slow Exposure and Early Baltimore, encourage us to examine the meanings of viewpoint — focused versus fuzzy — and how the “long view” can be used to augment “thinly-sliced” data.
