The shops of Rivertown, USA provide a glimpse of life in Evansville and the Midwest in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The progression of structures reflect the general growth of many communities. A log cabin represents the type of living quarters constructed by early settlers, while a kitchen and parlor depict a home in a more established community. Other shops illustrate the types of services that were established by entrepreneurs, artisans and professionals to serve a growing population.

They’re back! Dinosaurs will once again roam the Museum July 29–October 28 when Dinosaur Discovery roars into the Museum’s Evansville Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Center for History & Science. Dinosaur Discovery is sponsored by Old National Bank, Berry Global, Expressway Dodge, The Elm and Premier Pediatrics and Wellness.

Experience Dinosaur Discovery and get a taste of life during the Mesozoic era by coming face-to-face with large North American creatures from the Cretaceous period. Hear the thundering roar of the fearsome Albertosaurus, while a coastal Pteranodon flies overhead. Wander with the three-horned, giant-frilled Triceratops and its young as they graze on vegetation.

In addition to seeing a bipedal carnivorous dinosaur, a family of quadrupedal herbivorous dinosaurs, and a toothless carnivorous aerial reptile, children can become paleontologists while digging for fossils through sand and uncover even more fossils by rubbing crayons on paper-covered templates. Take a memory of your visit home with you with a photograph of you or your guests riding a Triceratops or peering out from inside the deadly jaws of a Tyrannosaurus rex. The exhibition includes a display of fossil replicas of dino skulls, eggs and footprint casts from the Cincinnati Museum Center.

Museum Member admission to Dinosaur Discovery will be $5 for Adults and free for Youth. Admission for Not-Yet Members are $20 for Adults and $16 for Youth. Ticket prices include admission to the Museum and all of its galleries, admission to our Evansville Museum Transportation Center (EMTRAC) and admission to any show of your choice in the Koch Immersive Theater during the day of your visit.

Steven Manolis(b. 1948) paints in watercolor and acrylic, concentrating on abstract expressionism with an emphasis on color and the creation of pleasing visual dimensions. “I love beauty, I love form, I love symmetry,” he writes. “Seeing color and form and proportion is really my entire life. I paint with color and I try to do it in a pleasing, beautiful way. The subject matter of color and beauty … is the way I see the world.”

Manolis has been a private art student of the renowned painter Wolf Kahn for nearly twenty years. He maintains a studio and gallery in Miami, Florida. Highly involved in the field of visual arts, Manolis was past Chairman of the Advisory Board of the National Academy of Design as well as a Trustee of the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, Vermont, which conducts the nation’s largest Artist Residency Program.

A major solo exhibition of the acrylic and watercolor paintings of J. Steven Manolis will be presented in the Evansville Museum’s Old Gallery and Eykamp Pavilion September 30 – November 25, 2018. The exhibition is made possible through the generous gift of John D. and Stephanie Engelbrecht.
