North Carolina sculptor John Payne (1949–2008) was fascinated by dinosaurs and mechanical things, two passions he combined to develop Kinetosaurs: Putting Some Teeth into Art and Science specifically for The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Featuring 10 mechanized dinosaurs that could move—a pair of them actually did battle—when controlled by humans, the exhibit explored how Payne used various artistic and scientific ideas and skills to create the creatures on display. Following a six-month run at the museum, the exhibit began a six-year tour of sites throughout North America. The exhibit was open at The Children’s Museum from June 25, 1999 to January 3, 2000.
