Despite humanistic knowledge and methods are vital in many relationships and societal contexts, humanities are struggling to get its messages out. This article addresses the development of new and engaging ways of opening up the humanities by investigating how art can serve as an experiential humanities exploratorium. The article probes how a concrete project, Camping Women, becomes a boundary object which bridges across people, art and humanities communities. The findings from the study confirm that this kind of art works well as a boundary object in ways of knowing, sensing, reflecting and doing, and offers new features to serve as a humanities exploratorium and engage volunteers to reach out to the public.
