Points of Departure; Meditations on Mapping. Cuban artists Los Carpinteros imprinted flip-flops with a map of Old Havana to convey the idea of walking in the shoes of another.  In this exhibition dozens of mappings from multiple disciplines are portals into the thinking of others.  Along with the anchor exhibit at the Mercer Gallery at MCC, six other venues will extend the scope of the show across the Rochester area, linking the various institutions and threading connections throughout.
