Theme: What an X-rayed dinosaur might look like


T. rex RayAbout the Design
What kind of dinosaur are you on the inside? Patients from Children’s Hospital answered this question with artwork that Artist/Teacher Ashley Hodder transferred to a Tyrannosaurus rex. Grouping the images by background and paint colors, Hodder created "T. reX Ray," a dinosaur that reveals its very bones. The children provided more than 100 images for the project using paper, paint, and glitter. Swarovski crystals on the dino’s toes and teeth provide a touch of glamour and high style.

About the Sponsor
PNC Bank takes a comprehensive approach to helping enrich the lives of its neighbors and drive economic development in the regions it serves. Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s DinoMite Days was a great fit for this strategy—it highlighted the museum’s outstanding displays, showcased the work of area artists, and attracted visitors to the core of our region. PNC Bank was proud to play a role.
