Summer Surprise!... A Pop Culture Gallery!

After 9 Time Capsules here on ART Evolved, the administrators were thinking a break from scientific Capsules might be a nice change of pace (not that anyone had to stick to the pure science to get into the galleries mind you :P). As the summer is supposed to be a fun time we tried to pick a theme to match.

So at the end of the summer we are pleased to host the first ever...

Palaeo Pop Culture Gallery!

As let's face it despite the coolness that was the prehistoric past, the fantasy of it running amok in the present (or at least against elements of the present) is too much fun to pass up!

This gallery is themed around the impossible, the fantastic, and just plain fun fiction that palaeontology has inspired. Whether it be a classic lost world, time travelling gone wrong, journey to the center of the Earth, atomic resurrection, or sci-fi cloned theme park we want your take on your favourite fictional prehistoric situations! Whether it be a homage to your favourite franchise, or a brand new idea in the genre this is your chance to share it with the world.
Be sure to check in here throughout July as we explore the various genres and themes that pop culture has used palaeontology to create!

This gallery goes up on September 1st so try to have your submissions in by then please... (though as always late entries will be accepted, and added to the gallery after the fact)
If you're new to the site, we accept any and all artwork submitted that is themed around any of our gallery topics. Just send your submission(s), along with any accompanying text you'd like with them, and the link to your website/blog/online picture gallery to our email, and we'll post them!
