Where art and fossils collide
Be prepared to look at the world in a whole new way—through the eyes of a walrus- and ammonite-obsessed scientist and an artist with a fondness for cheeseburgers, ratfish and trilobites—in this exhibition on West Coast fossils with highlights from Washington state and the remarkable stories that fossils reveal.
Uncover the diverse fossil bouquets of Republic, Seattle's ice age make-over, and more. Curated by Paleontologist Kirk Johnson and Artist Ray Troll, Cruisin' features life-size sculptures and models, images of prehistoric creatures and real fossils along with paintings, drawings and a light and audio installation. Step into a world where fossils come to life.
