Parents Weekend: McKissick Museum Tour and Brunch

Saturday, October 7, 2017 -
9:30am to 12:00pm

Location: 3rd Floor McKissick Museum

Join this “curator’s choice” tour of McKissick Museum’s natural history gallery, with a focus on the Historic Southern Naturalists project, which merges the old with the new, as three new touchscreens use modern technology to display fragile historic objects and documents that are rarely exhibited (if ever).  The exhibit, Natural Curiosity: The University of South Carolina and the Evolution of Scientific Inquiry in the Natural World, explores humans’ long curiosity of the natural world.  Afterward stay to learn about the newly endowed Ann Johnson Institute for Science, Technology & Society over a light brunch. 

Sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences, the McKissick Museum, and the Ann Johnson Institute for Science, Technology & Society
