Map making at the Museum

Today, artist Jain Mckay had set herself the challenge of creating 100 maps in a day! Not quite 100 was achieved, however Jain made many beautiful pieces of artwork from using her usual techniques of mixed media.

The pieces were created by Jain from using old maps, manuscripts, calendars, decorated paper, ink and paint.

Most of Jain’s pieces created today have been added to her exhibition ‘The Map Room’, which runs until Sunday 4th November 2012.

About janineclarefox

My name is Janine Fox and I am Assistant Museum Officer at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. My role is to care and document the museum collection. Working within a small team means I also help install exhibitions, carry out research for enquiries and assist with larger museum projects. What inspires me? Apart from tea and chocolate, I would say travel, photography, art and anything old with a story to tell! It will come as no surprise that I love my job; I work with objects, ensuring that they are looked after, made available for the public and that their stories are recorded for perpetuity.
