Horses and the Human Experience

January 22 – December 6, 2019

Over thousands of years, humans and horses have developed a unique partnership. Horses rely on humans for care, feeding, and protection.  Humans rely on horses for their speed, strength, and companionship.  Throughout the world, horses are integrated into all aspects of cultural life.  This student-curated exhibit focuses on areas where horses have transformed the human experience including labor and transportation, warfare, religion and spirituality, status and symbolism, and sports.  The objects on display provide striking examples of art and technology chosen to highlight the diversity of horse and human interactions in the world.
