Opening today in Odense, Denmark: A major museum exhibition called "Into the Unknown: A Journey Through Science Fiction," with 6 major Dinotopia paintings. Through Feb. 17, 2019.

Curators say: "Science fiction is responsible for some of the world’s most iconic films, music, literature and art. In the wake of the Star Wars and Alien blockbusters, a constant stream of films, games and books continues to transport us to new planets and galaxies, and into the distant future. But how did the genre arise at the end of the 18th century? And why has it become so popular with people of all ages?"

"This exhibition is the ultimate genre-defining exploration of science fiction, delving into its storytelling beginnings to discover how visionary creators have captured imaginations around the world. Visitors will encounter rare pieces, such as vintage comics and advertisements promoting Soviet visions of space, alongside well-loved classics, including maquettes from Jurassic Park and the original Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmets from Star Wars."
