Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity

  • California Academy of Sciences 55 Music Concourse Drive San Francisco, CA, 94118 United States (map)

Uniquely personal yet universal, skin is the way we face our world. In the California Academy of Sciences’ latest exhibit, Skin: Living Armor, Evolving Identity, visitors are invited to dive deep into the shape-shifting, color-changing, and ever-evolving science of skin. This multisensory, multilingual exhibit, which opens to the public on Friday, June 14, explores skin as both a complex organ that serves as a living interface between organisms and their environment and a culturally significant characteristic that shapes how humans view themselves, perceive others, and interact with one another in a modern world. The Skin exhibit will be presented in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Filipino.
