RACE in Greater Minnesota

The original RACE: Are We So Different? exhibition has been seen by more than 4 million people in 51 museums across the country since its debut in 2007. Created in partnership with the American Anthropological AssociationRACE uses photography, multimedia components, interactive activities, and more to help visitors look at race from three different perspectives - biology, history, and contemporary lived experience. The three perspectives are woven together to tell a compelling story of science with deep and lasting social impact.

In an effort to to give even more people an opportunity to experience RACE: Are We So Different?, we’re partnering with three communities in greater Minnesota to bring a smaller version of the exhibit to them. To make this happen, we created a special 450 sq. ft. version of the exhibit that can be installed in libraries, schools, and community centers. This version of the exhibit is also bilingual, with all of the content being presented in both English and Spanish.

The exhibits, bound for Worthington, Moorhead, and Rochester, will be installed in fall 2018 and run through spring 2019. In addition to the exhibits themselves, the Science Museum will be selecting advisory councils in each of the communities that will help us select community-led programs and events to fund alongside the exhibits.
