Artist Panel - Notched Bodies: Insects in Contemporary Art
Wednesday, October 30, 2013
6:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.
Comprising nearly 80 percent of the species on the planet, the immense diversity among insects has provided artists with a wealth of inspiration for centuries. Contemporary artists have been equally enamored with insects for their brilliant colors and forms, unique behaviors, and environmental significance, as well as social parallels and cultural commentary.
Join artists Joianne Bittle, Emilie Clark, Julia Oldham, and Ben Snead in a discussion about how their fascination with insects impacts their artwork. Afterwards, join artist Brandon Ballengée for a nocturnal field trip to his outdoor sculpture to search for insects.
