In the Wake of the Beagle

"In the Wake of the Beagle: Darwin in Latin American 1831-1836" is an exhibition opening tomorrow (1 March) in the Scholz Family gallery for Works on Paper in the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame at South Bend.

On display through 29 March, this exhibition presents a selection of photographs (including the one at right), lithographs, and books illustrating the Latin America sites visited by Darwin during the voyage of the Beagle. The exhibition is offered as part of a cross-disciplinary academic investigation of Darwin's seminal text, On the Origin of Species, to mark the 150th-anniversary its publication.
