Special Exhibit - Dinosaurs of Utah

More than 20 new species of large dinosaurs and reptiles have been discovered in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument since it was established in 1996. During the 76th Annual Meeting of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology, the Bureau of Land Management and Natural History Museum of Utah will display seven dinosaurs that have been described in the past 10 years, including Diabloceratops (featured on the annual meeting logo), Utahceratops, Nasutoceratops, Kosmoceratops, Lythronax, Terataphoneus, and Gryposaurus.

Special Exhibit - The Bearded Lady Project: Challenging the Face of Science
The Bearded Lady Project: Challenging the Face of Science will present a preview installation of photographs that feature women in the geosciences. The project celebrates the inspirational and adventurous women who choose to dedicate their lives in the search of clues to the history of life on earth, and also educates the public about the inequities and prejudices that exist in the field of science, with special emphasis on the geosciences. A feature length documentary and full portrait installation will be unveiled in 2017, but at SVP 2016, paleontologists will be offered a preview of this project.
