The traveling exhibit from Silver Plume Exhibitions and the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History blends science and art, featuring more than 50 pieces of original artwork, murals, sculptures, interactive displays and collection of fossils. “We are very excited to host this exhibit that explores the relationship between birds and dinosaurs,” said Marilyn Gillespie, Museum Director at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. The exhibit is now on display at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum and will conclude Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019.
