If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

Dinosaurs and more!

Children’s Museum of Indianapolis

© Becky Linhardt 2010

Huge sculptural dinosaurs burst from the side of the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, emphasizing the special place dinosaurs hold in the museum complex.  The museum’s  permanent exhibit “Dinosphere,” is a unique combination of educational activities and science focused learning. The changing of the day in this area is very impressive, especially the storm effects and sounds.

 With the nation’s largest display of real dinosaur bones and a respected research lab on site, children can watch scientists at work and ask questions.  They also have fun “digging” for fossils, puzzling together bone fragments in the Paleo Lab, and experiencing the impressive thunder and lightning effects of a simulated day in the “Age of the Dinosaur.”

Be sure to visit the display of dracorex hogwartsia.  The unique find, a 66 million year old skeleton of an amazingly, like-a-dragon dinosaur was named to honor children’s book author J. K Rowlings.  I love dragons and I was truly amazed at how dragon-like this dinosaur is, closely resembling imaginary oriental dragons.

“Dinospere” is just the start.  There are permanent science areas like ScienceWorks, , the Lilly Theater, SpaceQuest Planetarium, Playscape for children 5 years and younger and much, much more.  National touring exhibitions also are booked throughout the year – always something new to see!  Lots of conveniences for parents and grandparents too such as a food court, outside picnic areas, and easy parking.
