You know the scarves. You know the statue. You know the dinosaur — Diplodocus carnegii or Dippy as we like to call him.
But did you ever wonder how Dippy came to be Pittsburgh’s most beloved dinosaur?
This month, we are celebrating all things Dippy as we launch our new logo featuring his silhouette. The logo was developed with the help of our loyal visitors and members who attended multiple focus groups spanning the better part of 2016. Amazingly, 99% summed up what they wanted our logo to feature in just one word —“Dippy!”
Join us for a three-part blog series about Dippy’s history — from discovery to the well-loved, scarf bearing dinosaur outside the museum. Share your own Dippy photos, art, and stories using #newdippylogo.
