Bugs that invade, infest, infect, and generally wreak havoc on human civilization are the focus of this exciting new exhibit series, a companion to bestselling author Amy Stewart's New York Times bestseller Wicked Bugs: The Louse that Conquered Napoleon's Army and Other Diabolical Insects (Algonquin Books, May 2011).
Wicked Bugs has been featured twice this year on National Public Radio. Listen to Amy's interview on Fresh Air with Terry Gross here, http://www.npr.org/2011/04/25/135638924/where-to-find-the-worlds-most-wicked-bugs) ; and her interview with Weekend Edition's Linda Wertheimer here (this link is: http://www.npr.org/2011/04/30/135867077/wicked-bugs-an-encyclopedia-of-insect-villains)
The etchings that illustrate Wicked Bugs were created by Briony Morrow-Cribbs.
A selection of these prints are the focus of an elegant, framed art installation. More than simple prints on a wall, the limited edition, hand-tinted prints are presented within sophisticated shadow box displays that also contain factual information and 3-D objects and specimens.
Tour Dates ongoing; next venue is the Natural History Museum, Halifax Nova Scotia Winter 2014 as a compliment to BUGS: Outside the Box exhibition.
Steamer trunk-inspired and designed to travel, this exhibit is themed on all four sides and packed with interesting, entertaining, and thought-provoking information on humankind's relationship with bugs and the natural world.
Colorful and informative graphics and hands-on experiences set the stage for quality, experiential learning.
Currently in Development. Please contact us for more details.
Team up these two complimentary exhibits for an affordable, expanded temporary exhibit. Special pricing for double bookings is available.
