Middle Ground

Wednesday, June 15–Saturday, December 31, 2022

The Plaza


All Ages

From June 15 through November 30, 2022, people of all ages are invited to pull up a chair and dive into Middle Ground. This free exhibition includes over a dozen interactive experiences to get you thinking about how you think—and how we interact with others as we go about our daily lives.

Social scientists have studied how we think, feel, and behave in relation to other people for decades. Their investigations have shed light on bias and stereotyping, humor and generosity, how we work together, and how we pull apart into tribes.

Middle Ground is made possible by grants from the National Science Foundation (awards #1713638 and #2116110).
