Exhibit: Beautiful Beasts: The Unseen Life of Oklahoma Spiders and Insects Norman, OK

NORMAN – See the “Beautiful Beasts: The Unseen Life of Oklahoma Spiders and Insects” at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, 2401 Chautauqua Ave.

“Beautiful Beasts” depicts stunning images of insects through immense color macrophotographs alongside descriptions of where and how the photographs were taken. The exhibit chronicles photographer Thomas Shahan’s tireless search for arthropods, a venture that has made him into an outspoken advocate for education about the role they play in our lives.

“Beautiful Beasts” is made possible, in part, by the Norman Arts Council Grant Program.

The exhibit is on view through Sept. 8.

The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is located on the University of Oklahoma Norman campus at Timberdell Road and Chautauqua Avenue. For more information, go to www.snomnh.ou.edu.
