Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature

Aug. 29 – Oct. 8, 2016

Park Library, 3rd Floor Exhibit Area​

This exhibit explores the enduring power to the Frankenstein story to expose hidden fears of science and technology – both in the original novel and shaped into new forms, such as plays, films and comics. Captivating audiences for 200 years, as scientists have gained new knowledge, the Frankenstein story remains like a warning beacon, throwing the unsettling beam upon human efforts to penetrate secrets of nature.
