4 billion years and a few days old

AN 80-year-old mural by Charles Knight is restored for "Evolving Planet," a permanent exhibit that was to have opened Friday at the Field Museum in Chicago. Covering 4 billion years of evolution, it presents more than 1,000 specimens, including dinosaurs; 150 interactive displays; and a simulated 300-million-year-old forest. Museum admission is $12 for adults, $7 for ages 4 to 11. Information: (312) 922-9410, www.fieldmuseum.org/evolvingplanet.
