Dinotopia Museum Exhibition

The biggest-ever exhibition of original Dinotopia artwork opened January 28 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin. 

The exhibition features 61 original oil paintings created for the Dinotopia books. It will be on view through April 8, 2012.


The show includes paintings from three Dinotopia books, Dinotopia: A Land Apart From Time (1992), Dinotopia: The World Beneath (1995), and Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara (2007), along with a window into the creative process by means of preliminary sketches, plein air paintings, and handmade reference maquettes.

Two of the most important paintings in the Dinotopia series, Dinosaur Parade and Dinosaur Boulevard, which have not been publicly exhibited in more than 15 years, will also be included.

There are lots of activities scheduled for the run of the exhibit. James Gurney will be in attendance March 1-4 for lectures, workshops, and gallery walk-throughs.
