"Animal Connections: Our Journey Together" is a traveling exhibit on an 18-wheel truck that introduces visitors of all ages to the complex bond between humans and animals. Presented by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service to mark the 150th anniversary of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the project is made possible through the generous support of Zoetis, an independent company that discovers, develops and manufacturers veterinary vaccines and medicines.
"Animal Connections" will be at Museum Campus near the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago Tuesday, July 23, through Thursday, July 25. Following the Museum Campus showing, the exhibition will visit select spaces throughout the Chicago Park District July 27 through August 9. For the safety of animals and people, visitors are asked not to bring pets.
Visitors to "Animal Connections" can continue the learning experience online at animalconnections.com. The site will include resources on animal care and careers in veterinary medicine as well as itinerary details for the tour of Chicago parks.
