Special Exhibits Included with CityPASS

Extinct Madagascar: Picturing the Island's Past
Open through October 1, 2015
Located just off the coast of Southeast Africa, the island of Madagascar has been home to an abundance of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth. The island’s seclusion allows native animals and plants to evolve in isolation, resulting in some of the earth’s most bizarre and surprising creatures. Can you imagine a gorilla-sized lemur? Or a bird that stood 10 feet tall? Picturing what the island of Madagascar used to be – and the fantastical creatures that roamed it – is a challenge for scientists and artists alike. In this unique upcoming exhibition, you’ll learn how Field Museum scientist Steve Goodman and State University of New York professor Bill Jungers teamed up with artist Velizar Simeonovski to recapture the extinct animals and their habitats by creating digital illustrations—from the bones up. .
Vodou: Sacred Powers of Haiti
Open through April 26, 2015
Vodou reflects the Haitian collective remembrance of triumph over slavery, and honors the spirit of resistance that has sustained the country through centuries of hardship. Come stand among a legion of "Lwa," or spirits, who vividly personify everything from love and sensuality to the courage of warriors. Experience the sights and sounds of a ritual possession ceremony, and get a rare look into the workroom of a Vodou secret society. Hear from practitioners themselves who share their own experiences and stories and encourage visitors to reflect on their own faith traditions. And see why Vodou remains a force today in the contemporary world beyond the borders of Haiti.
