|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
In 2003, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History presented DinoMite Days -- a celebration of its collection of dinosaur artifacts and exhibits as well as the creativity of many local Pittsburgh artists. Approximately 100 uniquely designed DinoMite Days dinosaur creations were displayed throughout the city and were eventually auctioned or sold to raise funds for the museum's Dinosaur Hall and other charities.
Among this herd of one-of-a-kind dinosaur creations was Neighborsaurus 143 -- a Tyrannosaurus rex designed by the art crew of Family Communications Inc. This statue features painted images of Mister Rogers and several of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe characters.
Neighborsaurus 143 is currently located inside the Fred Rogers Center in Latrobe, PA.
