Mappery For the love of maps

The Travel Angel

The Travel Angel, Los Angeles Farmers’ Market

Caitlin Dempsey, the editor of GisLounge sent us this beauty

“One of my favorite hidden gems at the Los Angeles Farmer’s Market is the “Travel Angel” which was installed in 2001 as part of a public art project. The piece is kind of hidden in a nook near one of the entrances, making it a delight to stumble upon.  I always look for it any time I visit the Grove.  The inside of the wings are covered with maps and the outer wings (which you can’t see in this photo) are collaged with postcards from places around the world.  “

Nice one Caitlin – you win the award as our first contributor
