Speaker: Ryan Roney, Curator, Tellus Science Museum
Topic: “Spanning the World of Building an Exhibit”

The recent temporary exhibit “Spanning the World of Minerals” at Tellus Science Museum featured 147 specimens from the Gail and Jim Spann mineral collection. Tellus curator Ryan Roney will present a talk titled “Spanning the World of Building an Exhibit” where he will show how specimens were selected from the 14,000 mineral specimens owned by the Spanns, how they were transported to Tellus, how the exhibit was designed and installed, and eventually taken down and returned. Ryan will also discuss how this and other temporary exhibits go from idea to opening and will explain how lending material to Tellus works in general.
