Opening reception: New Exhibits at the MCE! Pulling Back the Curtain and Our Changing PNW!

5:30 p.m., Thursday, September 28

Come celebrate with the Museum of Culture & Environment staff, and faculty and students from Museum Studies as we open two fabulous new exhibits for Fall 2017! Pulling Back the Curtain is an interactive exhibit that creatively explores the mysterious rituals that take place behind-the-scenes at museums. Why can’t you touch the artifacts in museum exhibits? And why do museums hide most of the objects they own? Our Changing Pacific Northwest brings into focus a central concern: anthropogenic climate change by asking, “How will climate change impact our region?” To answer this, the exhibit features the work of two CWU scientists, Susan Kaspari and Megan Walsh, whose research into the past helps us understand what the future may hold.

The Museum of Culture and Environment at CWU is located in Dean Hall, 1200 Wildcat Way, Ellensburg, Washington 98926-7544. Parking behind Dean Hall is free after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays. Visit us on Facebook: Phone: 509-963-2313 or e-mail:
