Hot Art: Discover New Dinos at the ROM

Murals by Julius Csotonyi add a colourful dimension to the ROM's Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibition

OPENS JUNE 23 Admit it: at some point in your childhood you were fascinated by dinosaurs. Perhaps you even fancied yourself an expert, having stared at so many tyrannosaurs, triceratops and velociraptors. The Royal Ontario Museum, however, thinks it’s a safe bet that you’ve never seen anything like the terrible lizards in Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana. This world-premiere exhibition, created by the ROM and its associate curator of vertebrate palaeontology, David Evans, reveals bizarre beasts that evolved on the prehistoric supercontinent comprising South America, Africa and Madagascar. Featuring fossils, bones, and 17 full-scale skeletal casts displayed against environmental murals and enhanced by augmented reality technology, the exhibition is an exciting introduction to the likes of the 110-foot-long Futalognkosaurus, the fearsome Giganotosaurus, the crocodilian Suchomimus and many others.
