HELP US: The Talkeetna Historical Society and the Talkeetna museum in Talkeetna Alaska is trying to raise funds to aquire the recently completed head sculpture, by artist James Havens, featuring Alaska's very first Elasmosaurus and of which was found here locally in Alaska's rugged Talkeetna Mountians.
The sculpture will be the main feature of a larger exhibit of ancient marine fossils found here. We are currently trying to raise $25,000. which will purchase the head sculpture and include the installation of the education exhibit it will be dispalyed with.
This is an exciting win/win for the musuem as well as the artist who has spent the last year creating the life sized head sculpture!
Donors and sponsors recieve a complimentary 11X 14 Alaskan dinosaur print as well as have thier name permanantly displayed on a plaque which will hang along side the exhibit.
We Thank you!
