Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS
Images of the Afterlife
Through June 9, 2013
Two ancient Egyptian mummies from Field Museum collections will come face-to-face with the public like never before in Images of the Afterlife. Recent CT scans and the latest 3D imaging revealed the mummies’ age-old secrets to Museum scientists, and enabled an artist to create hyper-realistic sculptures portraying how these two individuals looked in life, thousands of years ago. Now no longer merely mummies #30007 and #11517, you’ll be able to envision the mummified remains as real persons—a woman in her forties with curly hair and a teenage boy named Minirdis.
Scenes From the Stone Age: The Cave Paintings of Lascaux
Through September 8, 2013
Walk through exact cave replicas by flickering light and marvel at full-size copies of paintings - some never seen before by the public - created nearly 20,000 years ago by our early ancestors. Deconstruct the paintings' many layers of complexities, meet a lifelike Stone Age family, and discover why the true meaning and purpose of the caves remain a mystery even today. For a limited time, uncover the birthplace of artistic creativity, only at The Field Museum.
This exhibition was created by The General Council of Dordogne, with support provided by the Regional Council of Aquitaine, the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, and the European Union.
Living with Wolves
Through July 7, 2013
Living among a pack of wolves at the edge of Idaho’s Sawtooth Wilderness, Jim and Jamie Dutcher spent years in a tented camp intimately observing the social hierarchy and behavior of the famous Sawtooth Pack. Now exquisite, large-scale photographs bring you closer than ever before to each individual pack member, and invite you to explore each wolf’s role within their interconnected social group. Experience the selection of pack leaders, the birth of pups, and the mourning ritual following the loss of a pack member. Plus, learn how the reintroduction of wolves has played a key role in balancing and managing the ecosystem of Yellowstone National Park and beyond.
This exhibition was organized by the nonprofit organization Living with Wolves.
