Exploratorium’s Middle Ground

The Exploratorium’s new outdoor installation on the western steps of the San Francisco Main Library – Middle Ground: Reconsidering Ourselves and Others  features 14 interactive, multimedia exhibits.

Middle Ground hopes to inspire bystanders to examine our biases and stereotypes, how we work as a team, the stories we tell ourselves about other people and how we all interact with each other subconsciously in our daily lives.

Part of a series of interactive outdoor exhibits, Middle Ground is designed by the Exploratorium’s Studio for Public Spaces in partnership with the Civic Center Initiative, and funded by the National Science Foundation and Science Sandbox, to bring dynamic and engaging interactive installations to Fulton Street, UN Plaza and Civic Center Plaza.

The installation will be up through June 2020.
