Map Portfolio: The Low Country of South Carolina

40' X 30' Map for Spoleto Festival USA, 2004

Tora Johnson designed this map in collaboration with Frances Whitehead, Kendra Hamilton, Walter Hood and Ernesto Pujol as part of an installation at the 2004 Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. Mary Jane Jacobs was curator. The installation, entitled "Water Table," featured rice paddies and this map/mural of the Low Country of South Carolina. This installation was the first step in an on-going, community-based collaboration between artists and others with the Spoleto Festival, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and College of the Atlantic. The map was printed on mesh wrap by Design To Print, Inc., St. George, UT http://www.dtph.com/.
