Hey everyone, this is a little oblique to the group's interest, but if you like maps and want to know about the territorial evolution of Texas, here's something for you. This Saturday (July 10) at 3pm, at the meeting of the Manchaca-Onion Creek Historical Association, I'll be giving a presentation called "How Texas Got Its Shape (and the Other Shapes It Could Have Been)" I'll be exploring the territorial evolution of the state of Texas from its beginnings in Spanish times to the 20th century Rio Grande border issues. My digital slideshow will be full of maps, maps, maps, both historic ones and custom ones I've created to show how Texas could've looked if history had taken a different course. It'll be at San Leanna Community Center, 2 miles south of Austin.
The Austin Design and Visual Arts Network (ADVAnet) is a group for designers and visual artists of all types, including professionals, job seekers, students, and those curious about getting into the field. We usually meet once a month, with two additional meetings where we join up with other groups. We were formerly known as Austin Texas Design and Media (ATXDM) from July 2009 to July 2012, and before that it was founded in 2003, called simply Austin Designer Meetup. We're Meetup.com's second oldest continuously active graphic design group. (We're watching you St. Louis!)
