About This Installation

Beetles share our world. They are varied, abundant, and perform many ecological functions. Beetles are eaten by all sorts of animals, they are pollinators for many plants, and aid in organic decomposition. Six beetles found in Michigan are represented in this work. These beetles were chosen for their diversity of color and shape: ladybug (red, black, and white), banded net-winged beetle (orange stripes), firefly (yellow, black, and red), green June bug (green), six-spotted tiger beetle (greenish blue with white spots), and the stag beetle (black, brown, and purple).
