Mysteries In Ice | Thompson Library Gallery | ArtCop21

Mysteries in Ice is a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center Archival Program. The historic collections of the Polar Archives are featured alongside contemporary pieces that represent current exploration in ice-covered regions.

This exhibit addresses elements of daily life in harsh environments, including lodging and food, as well as the communication of scientific concepts in media and pop culture. Documents, artifacts, and imagery highlight The Ohio State University’s contribution to our understanding of Earth’s changing climate.

Curated by Jason Cervenec, Laura Kissel and Lynn Lay.
Special thanks to the Lincoln Ellsworth Foundation, the Kane Lodge Foundation and the Friends of the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center for their generous financial support.
