Dinosaur Parade by James Gurney
"Inspired by a deep and abiding interest in archaeology, lost civilizations, and the art of illustration, James Gurney invites viewers to enter a fantastical world in which dinosaurs and humans live side-by-side. His luminous paintings, beautifully crafted drawings and hand-made models, which are featured in this exhibition, explore the wonders of the distant past through the lens of the imagination."

Gulliver and the Lilliputians by Jehan Vibert
The exhibition also includes Jehan Georges Vibert's painting of Gulliver and the Lilliputians which brought $1,497,000 at Sotheby's in 2008 setting a record price for the artists work.
