CHARTING THE WOLVERINE: MAP COLLAGE
Elaine S. Wilson chronicles the experience of riding Amtrak’s train from Ann Arbor to Chicago by combining maps, aerial drawings and watercolor images. The prints are the result of over five years of research in map collections at the University of Michigan, Library of Congress and Yale University, as well as countless trips along the tracks to find sites identified from the windows of the train at which to set up her easel. Now based in Washington D.C., Wilson taught previously at the U-M School of Art and Design and Washtenaw Community College. Her work is in the collections of Grand Rapids Art Museum, the Office of the President of U-M, Herman Miller Inc., Washtenaw Community College and C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.
