Paleontologist and Science Communicator Dr. Dan Vidal teams up with Paleoartist and Fossil Preparator Tyler Keillor to discuss the art and science of paleoart.

In this virtual presentation, you'll learn about the differences between "paleoart" and "paleoimagery", see how paleoart displays the accumulated history of scientific thought from the time that it is created, and hear how paleoart and paleoimagery have an immense influence on the mindset of scientists when it comes to interpreting their new fossil findings.

FREE. Must register to receive the Zoom link.
