The maps that make up the Places & Spaces exhibit are chosen annually in a process that begins with a call for maps that correspond to a particular theme or address the concerns of a particular audience. Then, the team of international reviewers and exhibit advisors shown below work with the Indiana University exhibit team (comprised of two curators and paid staff) to select the most stunning and innovative maps from those submitted. The Indiana University exhibit team benefits greatly from the expert input it receives from this international advisory board.
