In the Dark

The Dark—a place of mystery. Sometimes scary, but always intriguing, darkness beckons exploration and represents the unknown. But it’s also a natural evolutionary selective pressure that has caused plants and animals to adapt to ecosystems like caves, the deep sea, the forest at night, and underneath the ground.


Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition

On April 15, 1912, Titanic, the world’s largest ship, sank after colliding with an iceberg, claiming more than 1,500 lives and subsequently altering the world’s confidence in modern technology. More than 100 years later, Sloan Museum will pay tribute to the tragedy through Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition. Legendary artifacts conserved from the ship’s debris field are showcased, offering visitors a poignant look at this iconic ship and its passengers.


Proof Of Concept

The Buick Gallery’s new exhibit Proof of Concept features not only four legendary Dream Cars, but also the production models they inspired. Some, like the 1953 Buick Skylark, sprang near-fully formed from their four-wheeled ancestor, while others carry their heritage in more subtle ways, with only a slight nod to an understated styling cue to tie them to their conceptual forefathers.
