Traveling Treasures 2017

For nearly 20 years, the Natural History Museum of Utah and Zions Bank have worked together on Traveling Treasures, a robust annual outreach partnership designed to bring the state museum of natural history, and its collections, into Utah’s diverse communities. Every year, a team of educators, exhibit designers, bank personnel, and museum volunteers together create a new traveling exhibit which explores an intriguing aspect of the natural history of the state, region, or planet.

During its time on the road each year, Traveling Treasures visits up to 12 cities and hosts family festivals and packed community lectures throughout the state. This community programming allows the Natural History Museum of Utah to connect with Utah’s communities statewide—from Heber, Providence, and Provo to Manti, Delta, and Vernal.

Traveling Treasures: The Nature of Color

We live in a world of color. Color plays a crucial role in the lives of countless species, whether they depend on it for camouflage, finding their favorite food, or communicating to their flock. Colors in the natural world can arise from surprising sources. In fact, some of nature's most dazzling colors are optical tricks. Color also plays a powerful role in human culture as a means of expressing beliefs, emotions, and creativity. Take a look at color in this exhibit from the Natural History Museum of Utah sponsored by Zions Bank.
