Marianne Smith Memorial Lecture: How I Paint Dinosaurs: Art, Science, and Imagination  Marianne Smith Memorial Lecture: How I Paint Dinosaurs: Art, Science, and Imagination

Renowned paleo-artist and Dinotopia author James Gurney will share the practical methods that he uses to translate a scientist’s understanding of an extinct creature into a realistic painting.

In this digital slide presentation James Gurney will share the practical methods that he uses to translate a scientist's understanding of an extinct creature into a realistic painting. The process includes research, thumbnail sketches, maquettes, photo references, and plein-air studies. He will also chronicle the creative development that led to the fantasy universe of Dinotopia, where humans and dinosaurs live in peaceful interdependence, and how scientists and librarians contributed their expertise to that project, too.

After the lecture, James Gurney will be available for a book signing.

The Museum will open at 6:20 pm. Reception at 6:30 pm, talk at 7:00 pm. Registration required; click “Reservations” button below. Free for Museum members and students with ID; nonmembers $15.
