You’ll be bug-eyed at the oversize insects on display in Bugs Outside the Box! Naturalist Dan Lazar, who teaches the Arboretum’s Ecology of Insects class, leads an engaging walk-through the exhibit, where you’ll see the exceptionally detailed and extraordinarily large insect sculptures of Lorenzo Possenti of Ecofauna. Showcasing the delicate beauty and intricate details not visible to the naked eye, Bugs Outside the Box educates about insect ecology and taxonomy, magnifying what might easily be overlooked!

Bugs Outside the Box will be on view at the Baker Center Gallery from May 25th – September 8, 2024.
