As I work on the storyline of our upcoming exhibit BUGS: Outside The Box, the beauty and artistry of bugs is heavily in my forethought. There is beauty to be discovered, a new way of looking at creatures that we revile, avoid, or simply ignore. The incredible, intricate, and enormous sculptures in the exhibit accomplish this so well that it's hard to ignore the fact that a stag beetle, blown up to more than four feet long, has an amazingly captivating texture to its exoskeleton, and elegant and graceful appendages.
Lest we forget the countless, dedicated scientist/artisans that capture this same beauty in scientific illustrations.
