DMNS 2004 PaleoArt Symposium and Art Show//Submission time!

Hello everyone,

Something for you paleo-artists out there. Mark Klingler has asked me to
pass this announcement along to the list. I think it's been posted before
here , but they are now taking submissions on the website:

Should be a great time with a some really  truly amazing speakers kicking it
off. Like our own Mark "Sabercat" Hallet!! Hopefully this will be a terrific
start to some really special symposiums and talks at SVP finally aimed for
the artists and paleo-art fans.

Rock on paleo-artists!
Todd Marshall
