Seattlites, and anyone who is visiting before March, I just have to say I am so proud of my institution.
We’re hosting Lucy (yes, the Lucy, the 3.2 million-year-old hominid fossil), exhibit to open on Saturday. Not only does the exhibit rock, effectively showing the region in which Lucy was found (Ethiopia), helping you discover for yourself why Lucy is such an important find, and majestically introducing you to Lucy herself … but our marketing department took a big step: the new tagline for Lucy’s Legacy:
“An ancestor to humans in the course of evolution.”
It says it, right on the posters! Phew. Step right up to the plate. There’s no controversy here. (I do have to admit, I might be misremembering the words slightly. I’ll double-check tomorrow.)
Don’t miss Lucy’s Legacy. Really, it’s beautiful and makes you stop and think … and when else are you going to see your great^160000 grandmother? (assuming 20-year generations)
