IN THE DARK S


tart seeing things at Ironworld’s next exhibit, In The Dark. This totally touchy- feely exhibit features the creatures of nature’s nightshift in five walk-through areas enabling visitors to see and experience some dark and largely unseen worlds as well as the ways people have reacted to darkness throughout history.


The $2 million nationally traveling exhibit is on loan to Ironworld from the Cincinnati Museum Center.


In the Dark’s walk-though areas include “The Darkness of Night,” detailed in dioramas of the Great Smoky Mountains, the Sonoran Desert and a Louisiana cypress swamp.


“Darkness Within the Soil” is an area of the exhibit that helps answer the question “What lurks beneath the soil of your own backyard?” This section includes interactive games such as “The Nose of a Mole,” where visitors can touch a computer pad that simulates the vibrations a


mole may sense within its underground habitat. In “Robomite,” visitors are invited to “become” a termite and investigate the underground colony.


Other components of the exhibit are: “Darkness Deep Within Caves,” “Darkness of the Deep Sea,” and “Darkness and Humans.”


Special exhibit programming is shaping up to include a “Night at the Museum” sleepovers, plus events geared to adults such as discussions about Seasonal Affective Disorder, spiritual darkness, and the darkness of social issues in our area.


A film series is also planned, plus Ironworld’s community gallery will feature works that explore the role of darkness in our region.


In The Dark starts August 30, 2008 through January 4, 2009 at Ironworld. Please call 800- 372-6437 for more details.
