Celebrate Winter with the University of Alberta

The University of Alberta Museums Do Winter is an exhibition that dusts off over 350 funky items from over 29 U of A collections.

From dinosaurs to dog sleds, hibernating butterflies to a whalebone sculpture, the exhibit hopes to celebrate winter by looking at objects through a lens of ice and snow.

The exhibit is on now, and will run until March 31 at the University of Alberta’s Enterprise Square campus downtown (10230 Jasper Ave.). It will be open Wednesdays through Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Thursdays until 9 p.m.

Also, there will be a handful of noon-hour series, featuring talks by a variety of researchers and curators:

Philip Currie, March 1, “Collecting Dinosaurs in Antarctica”

Chris Herd, March 7, “When Meteorites Fall on Snow: Unique Scientific Opportunities”

John Acorn, March 15, “Nature in Winter in Edmonton”

Jeremy Rossiter, March 23, “Winter Through Roman Eyes”

Jim Corrigan, March 29, “Curating Cool Stuff”
