Exclusive to the Everhart Museum is What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night! a family-oriented exhibit featuring the creative photography of Refe and Susan Tuma. The project began in 2012 when the two of them devoted the month of November to convincing their children that, while they sleep, their plastic dinosaur figures come to life. Each morning their children woke to the overnight antics of the toy dinosaurs as they created mischief, mayhem, and magic in the Tuma household.
The concept exploded on the internet in 2013 and in late October 2014 their first book What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night will be released by Little & Brown. “Why do we do this? Because in the age of iPads and Netflix, we don’t want our kids to lose their sense of wonder and imagination. In a time when the answers to all the world’s questions are a web-search away, we want our kids to experience a little mystery. All it takes is some time and energy, creativity, and a few plastic dinosaurs.” Childhood is fleeting, so let’s make sure it’s fun while it lasts.
Take a look at WNEP’s Ryan Leckey has to say about What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night!
Funding in part for this exhibit is provided by Lackawanna Heritage Valley.
