Artwork Depicting Prehistoric Past Donated to Dinosaur National Monument
Dinosaur National Monument has received a donation of artwork depicting what the landscape might have looked like when dinosaurs walked about.
Liz Bradford, a scientific illustrator intern, donated the art that offers a view of what the ancient world of the dinosaurs might have looked like. The monument plans to use the art for various educational projects, and will display a copy in the new visitor center.
Ms. Bradford researched the plants and animals that existed in the area millions of years ago during her 3-month internship at the monument. As she painted, Ms. Bradford took a picture of the canvas every hour and pieced them together into a 15-second video. To see how her artwork took shape, visit www.nps.gov/dino.
