A History as Art Exhibit
August 4 – January 27, 2019
How are science fact and science fiction related? How has the bird-dinosaur connection influenced the artistic narrative of paleontology? Explore the symbiotic nature of art and sci-fi through the paintings and sculptures of two Colorado artists whose basic principle is that good art, informed by science, can create a dialogue between scientists and museum audiences.
Gary Raham has worked as an artist and illustrator for over 40 years. With a background in biology education, Raham has written and illustrated 19 books, worked with schools on curriculum planning, and has written numerous magazine articles.
