Event Location: 
Old Capitol Museum
Pentecrest, University of Iowa


“Insects: A Collection in Multiple Dimensions”—featuring artwork by Kevin Chamberlain, 2012 Graduate Institute Fellow and MFA student in ceramics (CLAS)—opens in the UI Pentacrest Museums Gallery for the Arts, Humanities, and Sciences at the Old Capitol Museum. The exhibit will be on display through July and is free and open to the public.

The exhibit includes digital photographs and three-dimensional artistic renderings of specimens from the UI Museum of Natural History’s 100-year-old insect collection. Most of these photographs will be displayed next to the actual insect from the collection. Photography, 3-D scanning, rapid prototyping, plaster molds, ceramics, and mixed media sculptures were used in the exhibit.
