Birds of the World Gallery
See the newly reopened Birds of the World gallery at Harvard Museum of Natural History which has over 750 specimens from 200 families on display!Boasting over 10,000 species, birds are the most diverse land vertebrates on the planet, surpassing the biological diversity of mammals, reptiles, and amphibians. Thriving in every corner of the globe, from tropical forests to polar ice caps, birds vary tremendously in habit and size from diminutive bee hummingbirds to towering 10-foot-high elephant birds, flightless giants that roamed the African island country of Madagascar until the 17th century. In celebration of these beaked and feathered marvels, the Harvard Museum of Natural History opened the new Birds of the World gallery. On the balcony encircling Great Mammal Hall, this bright, newly-remodeled gallery captures the staggering diversity of birds with many hundreds of stunning specimens representing over 200 different bird families. New exhibit displays reveal the very latest in surprising scientific discoveries about the evolution of these modern dinosaur descendants.

Kronprinz Wilhelm and the Prinz Eitel Friedrich
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: Mariners' Museum Library Exhibition
During two years of internment (1915-1917) at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard, the officers and sailors of Kronprinz Wilhelm and Prinz Eitel Friedrich constructed a replica German village from spare wood and metal found on the ships and in the shipyard, and named it Eitel Wilhelm. The sailors sold tickets for tours, produce from their gardens and hand-made objects to the tourists, all in support of the German Red Cross. When the United States entered World War I, that village was burned to the ground to make room for expansion of the shipyard. The ships were sent to Philadelphia for conversion for the US Navy, and the sailors were packed off to a prison camp in Georgia. The internment story of a crew creating a local tourist attraction to benefit their Red Cross is rare, possibly unique in history, and brings a touch of humanity to a tragic war.

Transcommunality: Laura Anderson Barbata, Collaboration Beyond Borders
Winter Park, Florida
This exhibition documents the work of Mexican-born, New York-based artist Laura Anderson Barbata and her decade-long project with stilt-walking communities in Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico, and Brooklyn. Her project highlights the vitality of the moko jumbie stilt walking tradition and demonstrates the possibility of using this storied art form as a platform for social contemporary performance, group participation, and protest. Spanning from 15 feet tall to just 11 inches small, the works presented in the exhibition range from textile-based to sculptural objects, as well as photographs, videos, and projections that document the collaborative projects.
Laura Anderson Barbata is known for her participatory, collaborative art, often involving partnerships with local artisans. The relationships forged with collaborators and the cultural exchanges that take place are the most important components for the artist. "Transcommunality" encompasses community art, public art, social intervention, performance, and sculpture, focusing on an artist who has dedicated her practice to confronting the hierarchies of so-called “fine art” and popular art, craft and folk traditions.
"Transcommunality: Laura Anderson Barbata, Collaboration Beyond Borders" has previously been presented at the Centro de las Artes de Nuevo León, Monterrey; Museo de la Ciudad de México, México, D.F.; and Museo Textil de Oaxaca, México; BRIC House, Brooklyn, NY; and the University of Wisconsin, Madison.

Wonders of the Arctic 3D
Newport News, Virginia
Venue: 100 Museum Drive
The Arctic has always been a place of mystery, myth and fascination. The Inuit and their predecessors adapted and thrived for thousands of years in what is arguably the harshest environment on earth. Today, the Arctic is the focus of intense research. Instead of seeking to conquer the north, scientist pioneers are searching for answers to some troubling questions about the impacts of human activities around the world on this fragile and largely uninhabited frontier.
Wonders of the Arctic centers on our ongoing mission to explore and come to terms with the Arctic, and the compelling stories of our many forays into this captivating place will be interwoven to create a unifying message about the state of the Arctic today. Underlying all these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are quickly overtaking the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow.
All day; 40 min. long
