Mounds, Moon & Stars: The Legacy of Ohio’s Magnificent Earthworks

February 3 @ 2:00 pm April 13 @ 5:00 pm

The touring exhibition ‘Mounds, Moon & Stars: The Legacy of Ohio’s Magnificent Earthworks’ will open at the Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center in Portsmouth, Ohio, February 3, 2024.

Two thousand years ago Ohio was the epicenter of a flourishing and sophisticated cultural outpouring. The visionary Hopewell era peoples have moved on but their presence remains with us. From them we have inherited a landscape rich in knowledge and meaningful traditions. Today we are still discovering the depth of their engineering expertise, their artistic brilliance, and their influential spiritual worldview.

Please join us in recognizing and appreciating the Peoples who designed and developed the ceremonial sites we now call the Newark Earthworks, two locations in the upcoming UNESCO World Heritage site, the Hopewell Ceremonial Earthworks.

Please see the museum website for museum hours.

This exhibit was funded in part by an Ohio Humanities Ignite Grant.
