Gilboa Forest Exhibit- Black and White Print

Title

Gilboa Forest Exhibit- Black and White Print

Description

The Gilboa Forest exhibit was the State Museum's largest display. It was 36 feet wide, 25-30 feet tall, and 16-18 feet deep. Running water added sound, giving it a sense of realism. Goldring sent images such as this to her colleagues and friends to show them the exhibit. She also sent prints to the engineers who had collaborated with the museum to retrieve the fossils. The exhibit opened in 1925 to the general public and became very popular. When the New York State Museum moved to its current location in the 1970s, the exhibit was permanently taken down.
