Artist in Lanesboro using maps to create art

Posted: Updated:
LANESBORO, Minn. (FOX 47) -

One Oklahoma artist is in Lanesboro working on a project that shows how maps are a lot more than just getting from Point A to Point B.
Heather Clark Hilliard is exploring maps in her new project "The Art of Understanding Place."
    For the rest of September, Heather will be working on this project.
    By the end, she hopes to put together a collage or "quilt" of maps layered together.
    Right now, she's gathering physical and digital maps, mainly of Minnesota.
    She's also inviting the public to donate maps to her project of places people have visited.
If you have any maps you want to donate or if you want to learn more about Heather's project, she will be having two open houses at the studio Sept. 15 and Sept 22 from 5-8 p.m.
