They Wont Check Out
Science has identified about one million species of insects so far, accounting for almost half of all life forms known to man. Bugs can be found buzzing almost anywhere on Earth. For example, rock crawlers survive in the peaks of the Himalayas, producing a kind of antifreeze that prevents them from stalling. At the other extreme, worker ants in the Sahara thrive at temperatures hotter than a Chevy engine block.
Bugmeister Brian Burkhardt hatches his insect-happy show tonight at 7:00 at the Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, featuring funky depictions of pests previously unknown. His recent exhibits have included moths decked out in a Gucci pattern and mutant slugs inching across telephone cords plugged into mushroom spores under glass domes.
Sat., Oct. 14; Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: Oct. 14. Continues through Nov. 4
