THIS NEW BIRD'S-EYE-VIEW MAP of Eastport was commissioned by the Tides Insti- tute & Museum of Art. Bird's-eye-view map A new detailed bird' s-eye-view map of Eastport has just been completed, over a century since the last bird' s-eye-view was done in 1879. The Tides Institute & Mu- seum of Art (TIMA) commissioned artist and preservationist Kirsten Sparenborg to undertake the project six years ago. The map is all painstakingly drawn by hand, building by building, street by street. Sparenborg relied extensively on Google Street View as well as contemporary aeri- al photographs of Eastport supplied by TIMA and Kestrel Aerial Services. A se- ries of illustrations of unique Eastport fea- tures surrounds three sides of the map. A numbered identification guide at the bot- tom of the map marks key buildings and landmarks. Hugh French, director of TIMA, says, "A bird's-eye-view drawing is something we had long wanted to do. It's not some- thing that happens very often. It could well be another century before another one is done. The impetus for this one was a 2009 visit from Sue Clifford, director of Common Ground in England. She talked about the wonderful series of parish maps the organization has been doing of com- munities in England." Sparenborg has never visited Eastport, and the exchanges between TIMA and the artist during the development of the map COmeatJointhe, Us [ Eastportsoup Senior Center for and of Eastport completed were all done via the Intemet. During the Six years she spent working on the map, Sparenborg had two children and moved across country from Virginia to Tacoma, Wash. French says, "We're still hoping to have her visit Eastport." Support for the map was secured through ArtPlace, the Maine Arts Com- mission and private foundations. A full view of the map can be seen online at . The final original size map drawing is 88" long and 50" high. Reduced size ver- sions of the map are 24" long and 14" high and are available for sale for $35 through TIMA, either online through TI- MA's website or at TIMA's main build- ing in Eastport.
