A CALL FOR PALEOART SUBMISSIONS
For the 2008 – PaleoArt Poster Exhibit – SVP Cleveland
Wednesday, October 15, 2008, 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.
A call for paleoart submissions for the 2008 PaleoArt Poster Exhibit, to be held during the Welcome Reception for the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology 68th Annual Meeting, on Wednesday, October 15, 2008 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. The PaleoArt Poster Exhibit is not affiliated with SVP. It is being presented through an arrangement by the 2008 PaleoArt Poster Committee with the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. This exhibit is meant to compliment the SVP meeting and offer an opportunity for paleoartists to expose the SVP community to the art of clarification, reconstruction and visualization required by the science of paleontology to re-create and enliven extinct flora and fauna. No prizes will be awarded.
