Hallway Exhibitions

In 2012, COSI initiated an effort to improve the visual appeal and experience of our hallways and circulation spaces. With limited funding, we developed a combination of temporary experiences, painting, and permanent exhibit acquisitions. An effort was made to include content that would appeal to adults as well as family groups. The new experiences are planned with a nod to our permanent exhibit areas and grouped in collections as opposed to singular exhibits.

From gorgeous photography to thought-prevoking collections, enjoy these free, limited-engagement displays on your next visit.

Hungry Planet

Hungry Planet depicts families from around the world and explores human kind’s oldest social activity: eating. Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio spent time with the families as they farmed, shopped, cooked, and ate. At the end of each visit, they created a portrait of the family surrounded by a week’s worth of their groceries. The goal of the project and books is to help people see the world in a broader context and provide the means for comparing oneself to others.
