Borders of Paradise

In the Eyes of Explorers

  • June 08, 2013 - August 25, 2013

Summary of Exhibition

Imagined and exaggerated depictions of the new continent and its offerings persisted through the nineteenth century, satisfying the appetites of curious Europeans hungry for tales of mysterious, lost paradises and evolving primitive worlds.

Further Information about the Exhibition

This exhibition features maps, etchings and engravings, many of which appeared in literary works, which helped to reinforce and shape the Old World's skewed perception of life in the New World. Curated by Cynthia Duval of the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Daytona Beach.
