An art installation by environmental artist Jill Powers is on display in the BioLounge at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History. In her exhibition Jill has created beautiful patterns of winged insects flowing across the wall casting intricate shadows. Visitors will hear the sounds of beetles beneath the bark in a forest piece. All the materials are natural and feature an inner bark fiber called Kozo. Jill's work comes from her artistic investigation into the mysteries of insect life along with her desire to raise awareness about our delicate eco systems. The installation includes work that explores and highlights the role of pine bark beetles in the altering of many of Colorado's forests.
The museum is also offering a workshop connected with the exhibition: Insects as Art with Environmental Artist and Teacher Jill Powers Friday, September 13, 2013 - 2:00pm to 5:00pm in the BioLounge.
