The bone bed, retrieved from the Lance Formation in Wyoming and containing a wealth of bones from Edmontosaurus and other fossils, was transported to Frankfurt where it will be presented in a cooperative exhibition in conjunction with the Wyoming Dinosaur Center Thermopolis, the Frankfurter Kunstverein (Frankfurt Art Association), and National Geographic in the Senckenberg Natural History Museum. In front of the visitors, preparators will expose the fossils in the rock slab and prepare them for scientific analyses.
The Frankfurter Kunstverein is the cooperative partner of the exhibition „Edmond’s Prehistoric Realm – A Dinosaur Excavation in Frankfurt“ and invited the YRD.Works artist collective to design the presentation room where science can be experienced first-hand. The concept comprises three stations: the temporary building where scientists present their results; a “tapping area” where the visitors can examine rocks to discover their own fossils; and the new presentation of the Edmontosaurus mummy in the museum.
