Charting the Land of Flowers: 500 Years of Florida Maps

October 12 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Charting the Land of Flowers: 500 Years of Florida Maps

The Key West Art and Historical Society hosts “Charting the Land of Flowers: 500 Years of Florida Maps” by curator Rodney Kite-Powell. From the earliest depiction of Florida on the 1511 Martyr Map to a 21st century view of Florida from space, this presentation shows the dramatic changes that have occurred in Sunshine State over the past 500 years through historic maps. Rodney Kite-Powell is the Director of the Touchton Map Library at the Tampa Bay History Center. He received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Florida and a Master of Arts from the University of South Florida, both in U.S. history. He wrote and lectured on state and local history and is the author of three books: History of Davis Islands: David P. Davis, and the Story of a Landmark Tampa Neighborhood and Tampa Bay’s Waterfront: Its History and Development. Registration for this event is required. No admission fee is required to attend.

This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Key West Art and Historical Society. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
