The exhibit tells the story of the institute's 30-year impact on anthropology and understanding the human career – from the discovery of "Lucy" by Donald Johanson in 1974, to today's engaging research into how the human race may have survived in very small numbers in caves at the tip of South Africa. The exhibit is free and runs through Dec. 16.
