Chris Lane's imaginative program for Map Month 2016 was well received, with
its themes of sea monsters, mapmaking and mythmaking, geographical features
that never existed, and cartographic myths of the American West.  The
"Illusions, Delusions, and Confusions" map exhibit at Denver Public Library
and the "Mirage and Myth" map exhibit at the University of Colorado Boulder
continue through the end of June. The Telluride Historical Museum has also
opened a new exhibit:

Cartography of the American Southwest, focusing on the mapmakers of the
region.  It includes an augmented reality to create relief maps in real


Get ready for "Cartifacts IV" - our summer social event for RMMS members and
their guests - hosted by Jim Hensinger in Westminster on Saturday afternoon
July 23rd.  Some members might not know what is acceptable and are therefore
hesitant to bring their doo-dad, whatever it is, because it might not fit
in.  Some examples: globes, restaurant place mats, pot holders, navigation
instruments, dishware, clothing, stationery, book ends, jewelry and
accessories, toys, household items such as ash trays and waste baskets,
etc., etc.  Anything with a map story behind it.  We'll have a "make your
own sandwich" bar along with assorted beverages, so please save the date and
prepare to have a good time.  There will also be an informal swap meet.
Don't miss it!
