MONDO’s dino-sized gallery show celebrating Jurassic Park and the highly anticipated Jurassic World (in theaters June 12) will feature dozens of artists contributing original works of art and screen prints for one of the all time greatest blockbusters.
“When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” will have an opening reception on June 12th from 7:00 -10:00pm. The show will be on display until June 27th.
The films offer a rich world of colossal dinosaurs, gorgeous tropical landscapes and iconic characters for artists to draw their inspiration from. The title of the show “When Dinsoaurs Ruled The Earth” references the climactic scene of Jurassic Park when the T-Rex triumphantly reclaims her dominance at the top of the food chain, making the past tense of that falling banner’s copy ominously incorrect. Now 65 million + 22 years later, dinosaurs are getting their first fully functioning theme park in Jurassic World with all of the terrible implications of how that will go perfectly wrong.
“Hosting an entire gallery exhibit of new Jurassic Park artwork is a dream come true for us. It has been over 20 years since the first film captured the imagination of the entire planet and we hope to recreate some of the wonder and excitement of the franchise with this show,” said Mondo CEO Justin Ismael
Mondo will also offer a limited pressing of the previously sold out Jurassic Park original motion picture soundtrack on Dino DNA Splatter vinyl. The first poster reveal from the show is from artist Francesco Francavilla, depicting the awe-inspiring T-Rex ready to take a bite out of a certain island off the coast of Costa Rica with its inverse composition alluding to another famous Steven Spielberg movie poster featuring a toothy maw.
The following artists will be represented at “When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth.
Dan Black, Frans Boukas, Becky Cloonan, Sam Wolfe Connelly, DKNG, Jason Edmiston, James Flames, Francesco Francavilla, Ken Garduno, Nicole Gustafsson, Brandon Holt, Aaron Horkey, Jock, Rich Kelly, Kilas, The Little Friends of Printmaking, Dan McCarthy, Seb Mesnard, Drew Millward, Gary Pullin, Arik Roper, Neal Russler, Tiny Kitten Teeth, Todd Slater, Stan and Vince, Ken Taylor, John Vogl, Teagan White, Erica Williams, NC Winters and Wocco.
