STORIED OBJECTS

 
Suggested narratives—some personal, others historical, some biblical—permeate the works in this exhibition. Implicit in many pieces are histories of Black lives and experiences in America. Instead of telling overt tales, the artists rely on our powers of association to communicate narrative possibilities.
 
 
NORTHERN TRAIL
Ongoing | Woodland Park Zoo
 
Explore the rugged terrain of the Northern Trail. Mimicking the habitat of Alaska’s tundra and taiga region, the Northern Trail features the animals that make this area their home including brown bears, Roosevelt elk, river otters, snowy owls, mountain goats, and Steller’s sea eagles. Northern Trail includes the Taiga Viewing Shelter, an indoor viewing area where you see river otters swim playfully underwater and bears hunt for trout. Also check out the Tundra Center, with its beautiful 70-foot long curving mural depicting the Alaskan tundra and video screening room.

Step up, lean over and reach in – watch what happens when you gently stroke a sea cucumber. Test your fingertips against the prickly spines of a sea urchin and follow the scuttling steps of a hermit crab
