Microbial Life: A Universe at the Edge of Sight
Thriving all around, and even within us, is a minute universe of astonishing and diverse lifeforms so small, they cannot be seen by the human eye. Everything from our food, to the air we breathe, to the forest ecosystem, is based on the activity of microbes. These astonishing and diverse lifeforms that live inside and all around us are so small they cannot be seen by the human eye -- until now. The Harvard Museum of Natural History presents a new, unique exhibition, Microbial Life: A Universe at the Edge of Sight. Taking museum visitors through a multi-sensory journey into this fascinating, invisible realm, the Microbial Life odyssey provides a unique opportunity to experience the wonders of microbial activity and the surprisingly stunning beauty of bacterial forms. From a full-scale model kitchen to captivating models from the Harvard Medical School, visitors can delve into the fascinating, invisible realm of microbes: Earth's first inhabitants.

Animal-Shaped Vessels from the Ancient World: Feasting with Gods, Heroes, and Kings
This exhibition brings together nearly 60 elaborate vessels of animal shape from collections in the United States and Europe. While the songs, speeches, and prayers that enlivened ancient feasts are now largely lost to us, these vessels have survived, offering a glimpse into the rich symbolism and communal practices that found expression in the multifaceted world of feasting.

When: Sep 7, 2018 12am to Jan 6, 2019 12am in Cambridge, MA
Kalahari Perspectives: Anthropology, Photography, and the Marshall Family
The new exhibition will explore the photographic representation of Kalahari people known as the Ju/'hoansi and /Gwi of Namibia. Once pejoratively called Bushmen, they have been--throughout history--photographed and otherwise imaged in an effort to exploit and colonize them. In the 1950s, the Marshall family, based in Cambridge, MA, launched an effort to document the lives of these people before they were forever transformed. Culled from over 45,000 images, Kalahari Perspectives presents a select subset of the Marshalls' photography and guides visitors through a process of actively "reading" the images to better understand their potential to transform perception.
