Let's get this stampede started! There is a herd on 63rd and you're invited! Join the Thunder's Rumble the Bison at the community opening of Ancient. Massive. Wild. Hear Rumble's unique story, make an illustration of events in your life, discover what is made from a bison, and learn about the great American mammal.
Ancient. Massive. Wild. explores the meaning and significance of this iconic creature from the Plains Indian culture of the 1800s through the commercial and national symbol of the present. It charts the dramatic changes that occurred to the creature and its habitat, and to the people who depended upon it for their daily existence. The exhibition also illuminates the human response that eventually led to the bison's preservation as a species and a symbol in the 20th century.
Visit the new exhibition and celebrate with bison-themed sweets courtesy of Platt College Culinary Arts.
