“Building Dinosaurs” with Artist Michael Holland

Artist Michael Holland has created exhibit features for a number of natural history museums, including the Museum of the Rockies, the U.C. Berkeley Museum of Paleontology, the Natural History Museum of Utah, and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.  He is now at the Smithsonian working on the Deep Time exhibition currently under construction.

Next Wednesday (February 22, 2017, 5:30pm to 7:30pm), in an initiative of the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, Michael will give a conference at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum (Room WG-33, 1st Floor, West Wing) about the process of “building dinosaurs” i.e., the materials, techniques, and knowledge he uses at the intersection of art and science to create skeletal reconstructions of dinosaurs.
