Paint­ing di­nosaurs

Greenwich Time (Sunday) - - NEWS -

The Mar­i­anne Smith Memo­rial Lec­ture will be given from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tues­day at the Bruce Mu­seum as renowned pa­leo-artist and “Dino­topia” au­thor James Gur­ney speaks on “How I Paint Di­nosaurs: Art, Science, and Imag­i­na­tion.” Gur­ney will dis­cuss the prac­ti­cal meth­ods that he uses to trans­late a sci­en­tist’s un­der­stand­ing of an ex­tinct crea­ture into a re­al­is­tic paint­ing. 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, the au­thor will be avail­able for a book sign­ing. The mu­seum will open at 6:20 p.m., with a re­cep­tion at 6:30, and the talk at 7. Reg­is­tra­tion at Bruce­Mu­seum.org. Free for mem­bers and stu­dents with ID; non­mem­bers $15.
