Sunday, November 12, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm – Microbes Mini-Festival


Join Harvard Museum of Natural History educators, Harvard researchers, and the Art+Bio Collaborative on Sunday, November 12 from 1 – 4 to investigate the world of microbes through observation, stories, and art explorations. Try hands-on activities, observe real microbes hiding in unexpected places, and learn about their role in our lives. Explore the new HMNH exhibit, World in a Drop: Photographic Explorations of Microbial Life, and leave with new perspectives.

World in a Drop explores the minuscule ecosystem within a single drop of water, home to an astonishing diversity of organisms busily living out their lives and interconnected by myriad complex relationships. The photographic exhibit  is an aesthetic journey into this microbial world, as revealed through cutting-edge imaging technologies. With expertly executed photography, videography, and poetic narration, Scott Chimileski and Roberto Kolter capture the intrinsic beauty of a mysterious world that is seldom recognized. Special Event. Regular museum admission rates apply. Free parking is available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.
