Aug 19 all-day Norman B. Leventhal Map Center
The mapping of broad climate zones, wind direction, ocean currents, and related weather events has a long and storied history. In this exhibition, visitors will discover how “Venti” were wind personas who directed ancient ships and “Horae” were goddesses of the seasons who dictated natural order during the 15th-17th centuries, how Enlightenment scientists started to collect and map weather data, and how 19th century geographers reflecting the golden age of thematic cartography created innovative techniques to represent vast amounts of statistical data and developed complex maps furthering our understanding of climatic regions. As visitors explore five centuries of regions and seasons, they can compare this gradual sophistication of mapping climatic data, with the modern use of computers and models to further analyze the impact of changing climatic conditions on future generations.
Aug 19 all-day Northwest Corridor in front of the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center
Recent immigration has given Boston a new richness of ethnic, language and cultural diversity, with more countries than ever before represented among us. Boston’s foreign-born population, hailing from more than 130 countries, now accounts for 28% of the city’s total population, and the neighborhoods that make up Boston often tell unique stories of diversity and change. This exhibition compares the landscape of today’s “new” Boston with that of over 100 years ago. The maps and graphics on display here show where Boston’s foreign-born residents originate from, and where newer immigrant groups have settled, while celebrating who we are, and the vibrant diversity that is Boston.
