Sonic Sensation on display May 23 – September 7, 2019

Experience our sonic world and the sensation of being surrounded by everyday sounds.  Experiment with pitch, test your own hearing, make a movie soundtrack, and step into the ever-popular Scream Chamber!  Sort high and low pitches by hitting colored bells, create sounds by conducting an Invisible Orchestra, and launch a billiard ball to show how sound hitting our eardrums sends signals to our brain.

This exhibition was developed by the Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York.

In the Fields of the North is a series of evocative photographs accompanied by moving oral narratives – in English and Spanish – that take visitors into the contemporary world of migrant farm workers.

In the Fields of the North / En los campos del norte features the works of David Bacon, is produced in partnership with the California Rural Legal Assistance and the Binational Front of Indigenous Organizations, and is traveled by Exhibit Envoy.
