      EVENT DETAILS
      Mysteries Below the Ground Exhibit: the Architecture of Ant Nests

      In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below the Ground explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until June 10, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.
