05/25/2010 - Chocolate Display @ Bizzell

This summer the University of Oklahoma Libraries teams with the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History to promote their new exhibit: Chocolate.  This special exhibition from the Field Museum in Chicago will allow visitors to explore the relationship between human culture and this rainforest treasure. Chocolate, on view from May 15 through Sept. 12, will immerse visitors in a sweet experience, engage all their senses, and reveal facets of chocolate they may never have thought about before. The exhibition explores the plant, the products, the history and the culture of chocolate through the lenses of botany and ecology, anthropology and economics, conservation and popular culture. For more information on the Chocolate exhibit, please consult the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History website.  For more information on chocolate, please search the library catalog, our databases, or Ask Us.
