    'Mapping an Uneven Country: Bird’s Eye Views of Vermont'

    Tools

    Through March 3

    In the latter half of the 19th century, perspective paintings and the more common lithograph prints emerged as a way to depict human settlement. Though typically used to boost commercial investment in a nascent town, these as-seen-from-above images were also artistic panoramas that enabled residents to see their impact on the natural landscape — before there were airplanes and drones to help with that. Often created by itinerant “map men,” the artworks contributed to a sense of place. A current exhibit at the Shelburne Museum includes more than three dozen such drawings, paintings and prints that illustrate human-centric growth in the Green Mountain State. Writes curator Katie Wood Kirchhoff in exhibition notes, “The questions these views provoke — from ambivalence about burgeoning technologies to border relations between Vermont and Canada to changing perceptions of Vermont’s identity — are especially timely.” Map lovers in particular will enjoy trying to identify buildings and landmarks in this engaging collection.
