Dinotopia in Philadelphia through Monday

The Philadelphia Inquirer recommends the Dinotopia art exhibition as one of the best things to do with families.
"It’s nice to think that if the dinosaurs had survived that comet (or meteor, or earthquake, or visit from the Rigelian Empire, or whatever did them in) and continued to coexist with us, we’d be pals. That’s part of the appeal of “Dinotopia,” artist and author James Gurney’s delightful series about a 19th-century explorer visiting an island where gentle humans and smart dinos share an idyllic life. The other appealing aspect is Gurney’s gorgeous, detailed paintings for the books."
The exhibit ends Monday. Check it out 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13 and Monday, Nov. 16 at the University of Arts von Hess Illustration Gallery, Anderson Hall 717 (333 S. Broad St.).
Thank you, Michael Harrington at the Philadelphia Inquirer

We'd be pals - except that our "pals" would censor everything you said.

I took my illustration seniors from Moore College of Art and Design to see you exhibit last Wednesday. Fantastic!!

Thanks, Joe, for taking the Moore students to the exhibit. Glad you made it over.
