Since the dawn of humanity, art has played a vital role in defining what it means to be human. The ways in which people as individuals, communities, cultures, and societies choose to express themselves – whether for survival or pure aesthetics – can be confounding and profound. This exhibition sought to explore the universal elements and different characteristics of the creative mind and its evolutionary origins across cultures. 
Presented by Gallery 102 in collaboration with GW’s Advanced Study of Hominid Paleobiology, this exhibition was accompanied by a full-colored catalog and programming including lectures and workshops.
