Nature & Us

Nature & Us

Nature & Us is an interactive, temporary exhibit where visitors can share their ideas about how KNC can achieve its four new strategic goals: Equity, Inclusion, & Diversity, Innovative Infrastructure, Sustainability, and High-Quality Programming. Your responses will directly help KNC to better serve our community. We can’t wait to hear from you!



The Exhale Project

The Exhale Project

by Heather Briggs

The Exhale Project is a time capsule of hopes and worries that was created pre-COVID. The installation has over 500 origami cranes, and displays a selection of touching, handwritten notes from participants. The exhibit encourages viewers to take a moment to breathe and reflect, and to contribute notes for future exhibits.
