Science Art Stereotype - The Norton Murals 




Circling the walls of the museum's second floor Shaw Gallery is the History of Mankind mural series. The Logan Museum installed the paintings in 1925 to illustrate the “development of man” and to provide historical and cultural context for its collections. The murals reflect early 20th-century anthropological thinking about human evolution and indigenous cultures. This exhibit explores the history of the murals, how they came to the Logan, and what they reveal about anthropology in the early 20th century.
