Evolution Matters Lecture Series. Free Public Lecture.


Matthew Carrano, Curator of Dinosauria, National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution


Fossils provide evidence of how organisms have evolved and ecosystems have changed through time—and offer clues to our present and future. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History recently completed a seven-year renovation of its Fossil Hall, the largest in the institution’s history. Matthew Carrano, lead curator of the Fossil Hall, will describe the museum’s approach to creating a modern, relevant exhibition for the twenty-first century, featuring new research and more than seven hundred fossils. His talk will detail the goals, processes, and results of this enormous project, while highlighting the key topics selected to enhance the public’s understanding of the evolution of life on Earth.
Presented by the Harvard Museum of Natural History.


Free event parking at the 52 Oxford Street Garage.


Series supported by a generous gift from Drs. Herman and Joan Suit
