We all have implicit bias—unconscious stereotypes associated with groups of people—even if we don’t recognize it. A new traveling exhibition at the National Czech and Slovak Museum and Library in Cedar Rapids aims to increase awareness about this idea.

Put together by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, the showcase explores the social science, psychology and consequences of implicit bias. Organizers say “being aware of our bias can help us recognize their influence and impact on our behaviors and worldview.”

The exhibition is on display until May 16 in the museum’s Smith Gallery, which is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Learn more here.
