This Diverse World

Friday 15 November, 6.00pm-10.00pm

The artwork celebrates diversity, both in the natural world and its inhabitants. Luxmuralis have worked with Beyond the Binary, community groups and artists to respond to collections in new ways, bringing diverse lives to the centre of the piece. Reconnect with the Museums’ collections and see them projected onto the external facade of the Oxford University Museum of Natural History in a spectacular display.
