It wasn’t enough to build life-size dinosaurs out of recycled metal. Asheville sculptor John Payne imbued the 14 interactive sculptures in “Dinosaurs in Motion” with biomechanics and robotics, delighting children and adults with a creative illustration of science and technology. The public is invited to touch the kinetosaurs during an apprentice’s journey through art, science and innovation, while also learning about the late visionary artist who practiced what he preached: “If you can dream it, you can do it.”

10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. September 24 through January 8. Moody Gardens, One Hope Boulevard, Galveston. For information, call 800-582-4673 or visit moodygardens.org. Free to $14.95.
