When dinosaurs ruled the art world.

The JP Show (Just People) ran December 3rd & 4th, 2011 at Nucleus in Los Angeles. Curated by Julia Vickerman and Brandon Bird, it was an exhibit dedicated to what people love & remember most about the Jurassic Park film series: the human characters. Most of the art works can now be viewed online. Prints of some works are available as well as a short gallery of photos from the opening night.

A few links to get you going:

I had no idea there was a JP "culture" until I read this Grantland article.

Slightly off-topic, but Brandon Bird's Noam Chomsky van is perhaps one of my all-time favorite things.

Thanks, The Card Cheat. This is the third time in the new year someone has linked me to an interesting article in Grandland (that is not sports related). I guess I should be reading it.

Yeah, I can't be the only one who was rooting for the dinosaurs.

These are the same people who cut up porn photos so all you can see is the furniture, right?
