Ammonites, trilobites, dinosaurs, oh my!

Fossils are all around us. That's the message paleontologist Kirk Johnson and celebrated artist Ray Troll share in "Cruisin' the Fossil Freeway"--a traveling exhibit based on the book of the same title published in 2007. Fossils have long been a subject of fascination and are used by paleontologists to help reveal clues about early life on Earth. But how much can the fossil record tell us about evolution, extinction, and geologic time? Visitors to the exhibit will be encouraged to explore these key questions.

The exhibit features nineteen framed color prints of Troll's whimsical artwork from the book. Accompanying illustrations, maps, and stories of the illistrations, maps and stories of the duo's "opoch tale" highlight Troll and Johnson's 5,000-mile road trip through the American West as they sought to explore the fossil record.
