Green River Formation Fossil Fish, Wyoming, USA, Eocene Period, Permanent Collection of the Morris Museum

What Came Before US?
Sunday, July 28 – Sunday, September 23, 2018

What came before us? From the smallest organisms, to the towering dinosaurs – and numerous plants and animals in between-the fossils that remain from these creatures provide us with evidence of the life that existed on earth before we did.

In this exhibition, prowl the four regions of the United States to uncover what lies deep beneath the surface. Learn about the process of fossilization, and why particular types of fossils are found in specific regions. Ever wonder how fossils are collected? Get the inside scoop and who knows, you might just be lucky enough to discover a fossil bed right in your own back yard!

A Cache of Kinetic Art:
Simply Steampunk
Call for Artists

A four-year exhibition series featuring a variety of themes – A Cache of Kinetic Art, debuted in March 2018.

Simply Steampunk, the next part of this series, pursues the goal of featuring the creative energy and vitality of kineticism, by re-envisioning 19th century aesthetics combined with advances in machine technology. By mounting an exhibition such as this, the Morris Museum intends to draw parallels of innovative engineering, design and imagination of present-day artisans, and draw comparisons to the technical ingenuity and functionality of a bygone era. The exhibition will be on view from March 15 to July 14, 2019.
