Mystery of the Sickle-Claw Dinosaur
3101 n. fort valley road
Flagstaff, AZ 86001
This world PREMIERE of the most complete THERIZINOSAUR skeleton ever found showcases the real bones and exciting theories about how this strange group of dinosaurs used their GIANT SICKLE CLAWS in life, how they may have lived and evolved, and how the Museum’s own amazing specimen came to rest in Utah rocks that, when dinosaurs roamed, were the bottom of an ANCIENT SEA, 60 miles from the nearest shore.
As Exhibit Designer and Guest Curator, Victor Leshyk was responsible for all illustrations to reconstruct the anatomy and lifestyle of this new species (in close collaboration with renowned Paleontologist David Gillette), exhibit concept, layout, floorplan, and materials; interactive components; design of custom casework; development and selection of exhibit content; and aid in production of a companion Special Topic Issue of the Museum’s award-winning publication, Plateau.
