Beautiful Beasts: The Unseen life of Oklahoma Spiders and Insects
February 2 through September 8

Imagine traveling on safari through a land of bizarre and alien beasts, a world of predators and prey. Who would think that this place exists right outside your back door?

Oklahoma photographer Thomas Shahan will take you there.Beautiful Beasts presents a series of Shahan’s immense color macro photographs alongside descriptions of where and how the photographs were made. The exhibit chronicles the photographer’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.

Shahan’s up-close views of Oklahoma spiders and insects promise to forever change how visitors think and feel about these creatures. For more information about the exhibit, visit www.snomnh.ou.edu. Sponsored by a grant from the Norman Arts Council.
