MAPPING PORTREE AND SKYE | J. Maizlish Mole

After weeks of walking every street, pathway and route in Portree – then driving every road in Skye, acclaimed New York based artist J. Maizlish Mole created two beautifully humorous yet practical public maps. These maps, commissioned by ATLAS in partnership with The Portree and Area Community Trust (PACT) are objects of art but also playful navigational tools for the Isle of Skye as a whole, and the town of Portree in particular where they are installed.
