Exhibition of Rare Maps

A new exhibit at the Utah State Capitol; Rare Maps that Illustrate 500 Years of Exploration in Utah and the Mountain West, shows how mapmakers, tradesman, explorers and others perceived the land that became Utah. The display of 40 rare maps depicts the region from its earliest imaginings by European mapmakers to the modern state boundaries.

An opening reception for Utah Drawn: An Exhibition of Rare Maps will be held in the 4th Floor Gallery of the Utah State Capitol from 9 a.m. to noon on January 27. Additional maps from various institutions and private collectors will be offered as a “show and tell” event in the State Capitol Rotunda between noon and 2 p.m. on January 27. Utah Drawn will be offered through late summer 2017 by the Utah State Historical Society.

“Maps serve many purposes,” said Brad Westwood, Division of State History director. “Maps identify physical geographies and record landmarks and boundaries. They also reflect the imaginations, values, and goals of mapmakers. This is certainly true of these remarkable and rare maps.”
