Museum of Peoples, Cultures celebrates exhibit's end with date night April 8

Campus couples are invited to celebrate the closing of an exhibit at Brigham Young University’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures during “Survivor Date Night” Friday, April 8, at 7 p.m. in the museum. “New Lives: Building Community at Fourmile Ruin,” the exhibit which will be closing, has been a part of the MPC for two years — and the last time to see this exhibit will be during the date night.

Tickets are $10 per couple and will be available at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning April 4. Light refreshments will be served.

“Incorporating the information in the exhibits, the Survivor date night puts together a challenging event for couples to have fun and compete,” Debbie Smith, an education assistant at the museum, said.

Twelve couples will be divided into two tribes and compete in four different activities to try and get the most points for their group.  These activities will push couples to search and scavenge, test their brains and even endure a difficult task. Whichever tribe gets the most points will win a special prize, and the top two scoring couples will receive prizes as well.

The exhibit “New Lives,” created and designed by BYU students, focuses on an Anasazi pueblo in east-central Arizona. The exhibit explores changes that occurred at Fourmile Ruin as migrants, who were escaping a drought, and the local population worked together to forge a new identity for themselves. Nearly 38,000 people have visited “New Lives” since its opening in April 2009.
