Mild Weather Brings Insect Invasion!

March 12, 2013

In Massachusetts winter moth caterpillars are munching cranberry bogs months earlier than usual.  In Kansas, bumper crops of bean leaf and corn flea beetles anticipate snacking on soybeans and corn.   In Sacramento, monstrous metallic insects hatch in the lobby of the City College LRC.

What ARE they?  And What do they Want?

It’s the return of sculptures inspired by the insect world, made from wire and other materials by students in Mitra Fabian’s Art 370 class, 3D Design.

Come and admire the invasion.
