Dennis J. Wilson of Pangaea Designs

Dennis Wilson received his BFA in painting and sculpture from Rhode Island School of Design in 1988. After graduation, Dennis trekked west to Seattle where he was a studio assistant for well-known artists, Dale Chihuly and Buster Simpson. Dennis’ paintings and sculptures have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. His skill and aptitude for anatomy along with his abiding interest in the natural world led Dennis to accept a job in 1991 with the American Museum of Natural History to work as a reconstruction artist for a multi-million dollar renovation of their fossil halls. During his 5 year tenure at the AMNH, Dennis refined his skill as a reconstruction artist, preparator and exhibit designer, while expanding his knowledge of the natural sciences under the guidance of the museum scientists. Dennis merges form and function in every sculpture with the most scientific data available ensuring fidelity to both art and science that creates, says paleo-ornithologist, Dr. Luis Chiappe, “a crucial bridge between researchers and the museum audience.” Read Less
