The exhibit Australopithecine! recently opened at the Cabbell Library at Virginia Commonwealth University. The exhibit is curated by Dr. Noel Boaz, founding director of the Virginia Museum of Natural History. VMNH staff partnered in the development of the exhibit, which highlights Australopithecus sediba, a sensational new anthropological discovery from South Africa. After its closing at VCU, the exhibit will travel to VMNH for a summer 2013 opening. Pictured from left to right are Ebrahim Rasool, the Republic of South Africa's Ambassador to the United States, Lindsay Tarin, a VCU Anthropology major who interned with Dr. Boaz and worked on the Australopithecine! exhibit, and Dr. James Coleman, Dean of the College of Humanities and Sciences at VCU.
