Field Museum showcases George Washington Carver exhibit

Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

The Field Museum in Chicago is celebrating George this month. Not our presidents, but George Washington Carver (right). The museum's exhibit on the renowned black scientist, researcher, educator and peanut booster follows his life with a display of personal items, such as his eyeglasses; video displays; and dioramas, including a reproduction of his childhood farm.

The exhibit continues through July 6 and is free with museum admission ($12 adults and $7 for kids ages 4 to 11). But if you hurry, the museum is free in February. Info: (312) 922-9410,
