Wild Things: The Power of Nature in Our Lives
June 28, 2018 @ 10:00 am - September 30, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
The Museum of Vancouver (MOV) and Nature Vancouver proudly present the illuminating exhibition, Wild Things: The Power of Nature in Our Lives, on display from June 28, 2018 to September 2019.
Co-curated by Viviane Gosselin, Director of Collections & Exhibitions at MOV and Lee Beavington of Nature Vancouver, this exhibition delves into the life stories of local animals and plants—how they relate to each other and how they connect people to nature in the city. Scenic design, videos, taxidermy, crowd-sourcing technologies, and the display of natural specimens breathe life into these tales of co-habitation.
The immersive nature of the exhibition, including hands-on activities, encourages visitors to examine their relationship with nature, think about momentarily disconnecting from their devices, and find equilibrium with the natural world around them.
