Art is full of bugs: figuratively, illusionistically, literally and for BugFest this year ... virtually. Through the ages, artists have been inspired by bugs, created bugs, used bugs as materials and then watched their artwork being consumed by bugs. Join us for a presentation about the good, the bad and even the beautiful ways that bugs have contributed to art.
