Through science, history and cultural study, this traveling exhibit explores human variation and its impact on our lives.
Among the exhibit’s many offerings, “Race” will give groups the opportunity to discuss equity and inclusion in their workplace, facilitated by trained community members of the community who serve as exhibit volunteers.
The Putnam is seeking applications for volunteer discussion leaders and exhibit hosts willing to use their skills to enrich the exhibit experience for visitors and/or discussion groups. Volunteers may devote a few hours each month or several hours a week from February to early June. Job descriptions and applications are on the Putnam website at www.putnam.org/volunteer.
“Race: Are We So Different?” was developed by the American Anthropological Association in conjunction with the Science Center of Minnesota and funded by the National Science Foundation and Ford Foundation.
The exhibit will be open seven days a week beginning Jan. 26, during the Putnam’s regular hours (Monday-Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, noon-5 p.m.). Exhibit admission is included in the price of general admission — $9 for adults, $8 for youth (ages 3-18) and free for Putnam members. Seniors, college students and military save $1 on admission.
