The Michael Pecirno Minimal Maps series exhibits American geographic cropping configurations throughout the nation. The artist assembled the images based on satellite photography and data taken from the USDA CropScape Program, giving way to intricate and informative maps.

This collection of Pecirno pieces are focused specifically on grass, evergreens, shrubs and corn. Colors were selected according to the featured subjects, hence the assortment of green and yellow hues.

By visually displaying where the greatest concentrations are of each product through shading, this series will communicate important findings in a quick and simple manner. For optic learners both inside and outside of the classroom, this trait will be particularly appreciated when addressing either cartography or agriculture.
