Over the weekend, the National Museum of Animals & Society kicked off their newest exhibit, “Light in Dark Places: Anti-Vivisection from the Victorian Era to Modern Day.” The exhibit highlights the pioneers of the anti-animal testing movement, from suffragettes and artists to authors and doctors, through the years.
Among the special guests were activist Simone Reyes, who starred in the “Running Russel Simmons” reality show, and singer/songwriter/DJ, Moby was also in attendance. Moby shared on Instagram a statue from the exhibit with a powerful message. The piece is called, “Help Me”.
“Light in Dark Places” is curated by Julia Orr and involved the participation of American Anti-Vivisection Society, National Anti-Vivisection Society, New England Anti-Vivisection Society, Stop Animal Exploitation Now, PETA, Beagle Freedom Project, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, The Ernest Bell Memorial Library, and White Coat Waste. It runs from May 10th through August 3rd.
