A Cast of Spectacular Skeletons: Dinosaurs On Display

from Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Program image

When you visit a museum and see spectacular skeletons towering overhead, do you ever wonder where they came from and who set them up for visitors to see?  Meet David Chapman, our Physical Anthropology Casting Technician, and learn about his creative career that combines a love of both art and science.  Mr. Chapman has worked with the museum since 1986, and he will share some inside information about dinosaurs that you learn from carefully studying their skeletons.  Some of the bones YOU have seen on display in museums might be perfect copies of the originals that Mr. Chapman created!
