Three exhibition galleries provide venues for a continuous schedule of exhibitions interpreting research and collections in the humanities. Recent major exhibitions have included Home Front: Daily Life in the Civil War North, The Aztecs and the Making of Colonial Mexico, and Make Big Plans: Daniel Burnham’s Vision of an American Metropolis. These physical exhibitions were accompanied by Digital Exhibitions that have lived on after the exhibits concluded their limited runs. The Newberry also curates stand-alone digital exhibitions on themes and subjects inspired by our collection strengths. Read more about our Digital Resources.
