The Art of Dinosaur Science

At Lakeside Arts Centre


In a unique partnership between Nottingham City Council and the University of Nottingham, Nottingham Lakeside Arts is thrilled to welcome a Dilophosaurus and an Alxasaurus to Lakeside as part of the world exclusive Dinosaurs of China exhibition – taking place across Wollaton Hall and Nottingham Lakeside Arts from July to October.

Lakeside’s interactive exhibition presents evidence for the evolution of birds from dinosaurs. Recent fossil discoveries from China have led to new ideas of how dinosaurs looked. These Chinese dinosaurs show that dinosaurs could be beaked, fuzzy, feathery, and colourful, exactly like modern birds. Depicting how these dinosaurs looked requires both scientific knowledge and artistic creativity. 

Diana-Saurus, our intrepid explorer will be out and about with our new baby Alxasaurus, come meet the dinosaur and help to name it.
