The new traveling exhibition will highlight key milestones in the journey of human evolution such as symbolic language development, as depicted in this artist’s rendering of a Homo sapiens creating an outline of his hand on a cave wall. “Exploring Human Origins: What Does It Mean to Be Human?” was developed by the Smithsonian Institution and American Library Association and will appear at 19 public libraries across the country between April 2015 and April 2017.
