Join us for the online live opening of DATA VISUALIZATION AND THE MODERN IMAGINATION, the newest virtual exhibition from the David Rumsey Map Center. It includes charts, maps, and other graphic representations that helped expand our collective sense of reality. Guest curator RJ Andrews will tour the exhibition's themes of nature, time, and society.

Award-winning data storyteller RJ Andrews is author and founder of Info We Trust and a scholar of data visualization history. He helps organizations solve information problems with maps, charts, and diagrams. In addition to curating this virtual exhibition, RJ's talk on data visualization in February this year was the Center's latest in-person event.

The opening will take place on Friday, September 25, 2020 on Zoom, and follows the schedule below:

2:45pm PDT - Zoom opens
3:00pm PDT - Talk by RJ Andrews, followed by Q&A
