Metamorphosis and Metaphor (Life and Death)
Metamorphosis and Metaphor (Life and Death) is a display of artwork inspired by Franz Kafka’s short story Metamorphosis done by the ARTS 2800 Three-Dimensional Design class working with instructor Robert Jones.
Using papier-mâché, NSU’s Farquhar College art students have created a bigger than life size entomological display featuring creepy creatures familiar to us all. A praying mantis stands tall, a mosquito buzzes overhead and a snail slides across the floor. These and other insects will be on display in the Alvin Sherman Library Atrium through the end of April.
