May 7 to July 7 — The art galleries at the Takoma Park Community Center showcase STEAM - when science intersects with art. The multi-artist exhibit includes several maps from the Historic Takoma archives that explores the art of cartography while offering glimpses of Takoma Park's early days. As part of the continuing 125th celebration, they give the flavor of mapmaking from 1865 through the 1920s. Names may have changed, but the general contours are familiar and give a unique look at Takoma Park in its earliest decades.
The opening reception is Thursday, May 7, from 7-9 pm.
