Charles Darwin Traveling Exhibit on Display at UO Science Library
The UO Science Library is displaying a traveling exhibit that explores Charles Darwin’s evolutionary theory. Entitled “Rewriting the Book of Nature: Charles Darwin and the Rise of Evolutionary Theory,” the exhibit will be on display until December 1, 2012.
The exhibit features four large posters that explore Charles Darwin’s vision—“from so simple a beginning, endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.” His vision now forms the foundation of the biological sciences. Radical in sweep, Darwin’s idea of naturally innovating and endlessly changing webs of life undercut all previous sciences.
The exhibition is sponsored by the History of Medicine Division, the National Library of Medicine, and the National Institutes of Health Office of History. Located down the stairs in Onyx Bridge Hall, the Science Library is open daily.
