Thanks to technological advances and the proliferation of smartphones, we have nearly instant access to more information than ever before. We also live in a time of misinformation, disinformation, fake news, deepfakes, and declining trust in experts and institutions. How do we sort through the vast amount of available information to determine what is, or is not, trustworthy?

This exhibition was organized by Erin Hanas, PhD, curator for academic and campus engagement.

Exhibition support is provided by Kristen and Geoff Cline, Hixson-Lied Endowment, and Patricia and Joel Meier.
