Dinosaurs in Motion: Where Art and Science Meet


Dinosaurs in Motion

Dinosaurs in Motion is a new, interactive, engaging STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics) experience built for visitors of all ages. Dinosaurs in Motion engages and educates visitors by using 14 magnificent, fully interactive, recycled metal dinosaur sculptures with exposed mechanics inspired by actual fossils. An amazing blend of art, science and innovation, the exhibition weaves in sketching, sculpting, kinetics, biomechanics, observing, and experimenting. Every piece is interactive for visitors to touch and learn. (exhibit will be cleaned according to COVID protocol)

The moving, human element to the exhibition lies in the story of the artist, John Payne, who truly is the heart of Dinosaurs in Motion. Through video and interactives, visitors will walk away with Payne's inspiring message: "If you can dream it, you can do it." The exhibition is one that inspires guests to learn, discover and create as they have done throughout the exhibition.


Exhibit open January 30 - April 25, 2021
