South Carolina Upcountry History Museum
The new South Carolina Upcountry Museum preserves the history of Upcountry South Carolina through education, research and service. Karen Carr Studio recently completed a series of maps for the new museum in Greenville, SC.
The Upcountry project demonstrated some of the flexibility Karen emphasizes in her work: The Museum needed a map that would provide visitors with an idea of South Carolina's part yet overlay familiar landmarks like highways from the present.
Karen provided the museum with maps with a series of separate overlays highlighting the information they wanted to showcase.
