Traveling Scholars

I think it's so awesome that the MFA chooses artists to give scholarships to so that they can delve deeper into their creative mind and bring us new and exciting art.
I thoroughly enjoyed Elizabeth H Wallace's Maps of the future. They showed hope and dispair. 

In the work Tension you can see how it is an actual map but perhaps of something imaginary. This one seems political.
 In the work Compassion it seems like two land masses are being brought together. IT almost looks like theres a human face on this map as well. I really appreciated the futuristic hopefulness in Elizabeth Wallace's work. It was simple but at the same time complex with all of the small lines and minimal use of color.
