Popular exhibitions soon to leave the Sternberg
11/01/2002

Only a few weeks remain to view "In the Dark: Worlds Without Light" and "Endangered Treasure: Our Arctic Wildlife Refuge" at Fort Hays State University's Sternberg Museum of Natural History.

"The 'In the Dark' exhibition has been very well received and it was extended at the Sternberg," said Dr. Jerry Choate, museum director.

"And the photographs in 'Endangered Treasure' are breathtaking," Choate added.

"In the Dark" focuses on environments that lack light, including caves, deep-sea, soil or nighttime, and the animals that inhabit them. Interactive components like computer games and puzzles as well as diorama elements help visitors explore life in the dark.

"In the Dark" will be on display through Sunday, Nov. 10, at the Sternberg Museum.

Eight internationally known wildlife photographers provided 50 large-sized photographs that make up the "Endangered Treasure" exhibition. The photographs were taken in the wild and remote Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska.

"Endangered Treasure" will be on display through the last weekend of November.
The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.

Sternberg Museum is closed Mondays.
