Maps

"You Are Here" is an ongoing project of ground murals that give the passerby a sense of place within a watershed and ecosystem. This provides a unique ecological vantage point that is greater than the local geopolitical boundaries of cities and towns.

These maps have been commissioned by and created for non-profit environmental and eductional orginazations. Funding has come from local and national grants. If you would like to commission a map of your watershed, or if you know of a local organization that might like to create a map for a particular project or location please contact Anna at anna@artbyannashapiro.com
