Exhibition: Chasing Bugs: Insects as Subject and Metaphor

Lila and Joel Harnett Museum, University of Richmond Museums
August 23 - October 3, 2017

Works by Sue Johnson are included in this exhibition. 

From the exhibition brochure: 
"Calculated for be the largest biomass of terrestrial animals, insects are a pervasive presence in our lives and imaginations. This exhibition explores our abiding fascination with insects in f science, literature, and the arts with images created from the late 1400's to the present.  Featuring more than 100 works (and within those pieces often scores of insects), the exhibition is a wondrous, extended look at more than five centuries of naturalists and artists representing the insect as subject matter and symbol.  Just as entomologists continue to search for their elusive insects, contemporary visual artists continue to chase bugs for intriguing and meaningful metaphors."
