More than 1,000 visitors to the Pittsburgh Children’s
Museum helped to create this sculpture. The children drew
dinosaur images onto bright paper cut into the shape of various
dino feet. Staff Artist Laura Shaffalo then transferred individual
drawings to the dino. With images being added over the course
of several weeks, watching the work in progress was as much
fun as participating.

Children's Museum of Pittsburgh has grown to become the region's
foremost educational resource for young children and their
families—serving more than 2 million people with innovative
exhibits and programs. The museum uses hands-on exhibits (permanent
and temporary), artifacts, performances, storytelling, and
art activities to help children better understand themselves,
others, and the world. Not only does this complementary programming
establish a strong context for appreciating exhibits, but
it fosters the sense of community and sharing that is central
to the mission of the Children's Museum.
