Projections brings into focus the Lopez Memorial Museum's extensive rare map collection. In addition, artworks that relate to notions of geographical concepts and rare books that retell voyages made by colonizers centuries back are also on view in the Museum. Mercedes Lopez Vargas wrote, 'What heightens the viewer's involvement with this exhibit, however, is not just appreciation of maps as artifacts, but rather the concept of using the maps as a springboard for thoughts, questions, discourses and musings - encouraging divergent and tangential reveries and reflections. The exhibition then lends the opportunity to rise to a kind of mind's journey that weaves in and out of art, history, geography, cartography and touches gently on the soul's longing for a 'boundless' flight into places real and conjured.'
