July 18 - September 30, 2018
The Moth Migration Project is a crowd-sourced collection of hand printed, drawn and cut paper moths founded by Hilary Lorenz. This collection will be exhibited in an installation along walls of the Heard exhibit halls. The featured moths will include species native to our region. Choosing moths, a nocturnal pollinator, as the vehicle for cross-pollination and international exchange, and using social media, Lorenz invites people to create paper moths native to their geographic location.
