Taking the Smithsonian’s Fossil Halls into the Twenty-First Century

April 14, 2020 EDT

Free and open to the public.

Fossils provide evidence of how organisms have evolved and ecosystems have changed through time — and offer clues to our present and future.

The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History recently completed a seven-year renovation of its Fossil Hall, the largest in the institution’s history.

Matthew Carrano, lead curator of the Fossil Hall, will describe the museum’s approach to creating a modern, relevant exhibition for the twenty-first century, featuring new research and more than seven hundred fossils.

His talk will detail the goals, processes and results of this enormous project, while highlighting the key topics selected to enhance the public’s understanding of the evolution of life on Earth.
