Vanished Worlds: a peek into paleoart from the Smithsonian Institution

Dates: October 15, 2015 through May 15, 2016

Location: Museum of the Earth, 1259 Trumansburg Rd. Ithaca, NY 14850

This fall, the Museum of the Earth’s temporary exhibit will give visitors a glimpse into the history, art, and science behind one of our nation’s greatest treasures. The Smithsonian permanently transferred several models and dioramas to the Museum of the Earth, including detailed dioramas, prehistoric plant sculptures, and an enormous dinosaur. Visitors will discover the history of each piece and the past life it depicts, what aspects are now considered scientifically inaccurate and why, and the artistic technique used to create each piece.

Cost: free with regular admission
