Antarctica: The Big Ice
This is the name of an exhibit made by the Otago Museum. I found this article about it being on display in Christchurch, New Zealand, starting September 3. The exhibit about the 50 years that New Zealand has played a role in Antarctic scientific expeditions. One focus of the things on display is artwork such as the works of Grahame Sydney. There are also historical artifacts including Sir Edmund Hillary's (he is the guy that first climbed Everest and New Zealander for those who do not remember why he sounds familiar) ice pick used on his trek to the South Pole. It sounds like totally interesting exhibit to check out if you happen to be in this area.
