We Are Nature: Living in the Anthropocene

When: Mondays, Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through June 30, 2018

Discover more about humanity's complex relationship with the environment and add your voice to the conversation in We Are Nature—the first exhibition in North America to focus on the Anthropocene. The Anthropocene is the current geological era in which humans are making a profound impact on the geological strata. While the term itself is still being debated by geologists, the museum is embracing it as a social and cultural tool for exploring the broad sum effect humans are having on the planet. Explore the Anthropocene for yourself as an era and a concept. Wander through a “human diorama” to contemplate the impact that our everyday lives have on a complicated and fragile ecosystem.
