“Dino Trio.” Sounds like a smooth crooner group from the ‘50’s. “Singing live tonight at the Starlight Lounge…it’s the Dino Trio!”
Last week, on our post about the Jurassic dinosaur collection at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, I mentioned DinoMite Days, a 2004 public art project which resulted in 100 uniquely decorated dinosaurs, made of fiberglass and weighing 200 lbs each. They were temporarily installed throughout the city, but most have since been sold to private collectors.
However, several can still be found on public display. We found these BIG beauties in front the “Wintergarden” building at PPG Place!
They are, from left to right:
Philiposaurus. Artist: Gary Mesa Gaido
Ketchupsaurus. Artist: Kristina Martinez
Mr. Dig. Artist: Glennis McClellan
Pittsburgh is Heinz country, so I especially like the one painted like a ketchup bottle. Note how Mr. Dig is peering over The Boy’s shoulder, like he wants to get into the photo!
We also found this one outside the Carnegie Science Center. Poor guy had a broken horn. I couldn’t find a sign with any information about him.
