CSI MEETS INDIANA JONES:
HOW ARCHAEOLOGISTS HELP SOLVE CRIMES
Thursday Oct. 6 from 7-8 p.m.
We’re all familiar with television programs that figure out whodunit through careful crime scene analysis. But how do police officers know what to look for? How do they interpret the results?

BOREAL BIRCH:
ART AND SCIENCE IN THE NORTHERN FOREST
July 1 through Oct. 2, Special Exhibits Gallery
This exhibit will feature work by three of Alaska’s best known artists—Margo Klass, Barry McWayne, and Kesler Woodward—who have worked together for two years with University of Alaska Fairbanks scientist Kimberley Maher to produce this exhibition exploring Alaska’s birch trees from a variety of perspectives.  In their paintings, photographs and mixed media sculpture the three artists “talk” with one another and with their scientist partner about birches, presenting this signature feature of the boreal forest as image, symbol and natural element.  The artwork will be accompanied by interpretive materials and commentary from the scientist and educational        materials related to the exhibition will be available for classroom use and online.
