Snapshots, that is. Here's some stuff. Fluff and stuff. From here and there around the museum. Today and in recent weeks. Enjoy.
My phone made this video while I wasn't looking. It does that. Weaves together sets of photos I've taken, and then later says, “Hey, here's a video of what you've been doing lately.” (It hasn't asked me for hush money yet.) "Yesterday" was probably two weeks ago, by the way.
This came recently in the mail. A large, bronze plaque for the new gallery. It was a heck of an envelope.
The plaque is still in the shipping crate for now, but will be mounted in the new gallery before the dedication on November 17.
What's this? Coming soon, that's what.
Here, try the side view.
Now, let me just turn it upside down…. A little more....
Got it now? Teeth? Red Dirt Dinos opens in our Oklahoma Museum Network gallery on November 18! Follow this link to a news story about the exhibit.
Hmm, what else. Oh, the museum store and foyer areas!
(above) This is the backing for the donor wall. Major contributors to the "Donald W Reynolds Great Plains Discovery Center" project will be recognized here. The panel is roughly 15 feet long and 7 feet high.
(below) A herd of 50 longhorn bison (Bison latifrons), like this one, will appear on the wall. Latifrons is an ancestor of the modern bison, and serves as the museum logo.
A couple more shots from the foyer, taken a few minutes ago.
We're learning how to make dirt in these photos. Looks hazardous. Caution!
(above, left) Who is the guy? No, really. He appears in so many museum pictures. Like a ghost. You don't see him when you take the photo, but then later, there he is.... (center) Stirring her cauldron.... (right) Jeff, our Montessori teacher from the Science Museum of Minnesota. I had to keep telling him not to stick his hand in the boiling pot! Just does not listen.
That's it for now. Well, just a few more....
From time to time, we'll post info here about what's going-on at the museum.
