2023 Logo Description

The 2023 meeting logo features the dinosaur Daspletosaurus from the Upper Cretaceous Judith River Formation of Montana set within an elliptical border. The blue color symbolizes the position of Cincinnati on the banks of the Ohio River. The lower boundary is composed of a silhouette of Cincinnati architectural icons, featuring from right to left, the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood, Cincinnati Music Hall, the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge, and Cincinnati Union Terminal, home to Cincinnati Museum Center and site of the 2023 SVP opening reception. Following a nearly three-year period of extensive renovation, Cincinnati Museum Center reopened to the public in November 2018 in one of the country’s most important Art Deco buildings. Preeminent among the new exhibit galleries is Dinosaur Hall, where the skeleton of Daspletosaurus welcomes visitors.
