The Intersection of Technology & Taxidermy: Leading Lights at the Field Museum

No one throws a party like Light Reading, and the 2015 Leading Lights Awards bash was no exception.

Chicago's Field Museum set the perfect backdrop for this momentous occasion. Elephants took center stage while Sue the T-Rex roamed the main floor. On the wings (ha!), the birds watched over the goings-on of the evening. The food was incredible, and the dessert spread, sponsored by Infinera Corp. (Nasdaq: INFN), was quite the display.

While the award winners were the true stars of the night (and we'll have another slideshow on them soon), there was much to be seen at the museum itself. Click through the following slideshow to see some of our favorite scenes from the event.

Sue the T-Rex
Sue the T-Rex watched over the evening's proceedings. Sue is 'largest, best-preserved, and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever found.' Pretty impressive specimen!
