Hamburgers and Fossils... Hold the Mayo

What are hamburgers doing in a museum gallery? Do the "Kidd Valley Hamburger Hunt" at the Burke Museum and find out the connection between hamburgers and paleontology.*

Now through March 20, 2010, all intrepid hamburger scavengers able to locate the correct number of hamburgers in the current exhibit Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway, will receive a gift from Kidd Valley and the Burke Museum. So stop in and satisfy your hamburger curiosity!

Photo of hamburger cast on display in the Cruisin' exhibit. Approximately 14-15 years old, Ray collected it in Ketchikan, Alaska.

*Yes, there is a connection: artist Ray Troll, has a love of hamburgers and has imbedded an abundance of burgers throughout his artwork in the Cruisin the Fossil Freeway exhibit for a little irreverent fun.
