Tuesday, Jan. 24 — Let’s Put Worcester on the Map: A Google Workshop with Peter Dunn, 5:30-7 p.m., Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square Cartography’s making a comeback — it’s about darn time, isn’t it?! We can only hope calligraphy is next. And then maybe needlepoint — we miss those kitchen-wall words of wisdom. Alas, we digress. Mostly because there’s no comeback tour on the horizon. Unless you count the simmering small business revival in the city.
And that’s what Peter Dunn — a city employee who’s played a pivotal role in boosting many startups, including Giselle Rivera-Flores’ The Learning Hub — is here to talk about: getting your business, and its downtown or Tatnuck Square or Grafton Hill address, in front of as many eyes as possible. Technology is a wonderful thing — except for cartographers.
Wednesday, Jan. 25 — “Last Frontier” exhibit Opening Reception, 5:15-6:30 p.m., Cantor Art Gallery, College of the Holy Cross, 1 College St. Nerd alert: Important to note that this is not an exhibition of “Star Trek”-related art. Besides, that’s the “final frontier,” anyway, Poindexter … and you call yourself a nerd?! No, these are the (artistic) voyages of a diverse set of Latin American photographers, sculptors and videographers who set out to explore the “subjectivity of territory.”
