What’s Happening Now
In the first comprehensive and complete exhibit of its kind, Mysteries Below Ground: The Architecture of Ant Nests explores the intricate workings of 25 underground ant nests. This exhibit will reveal the enormous range of size and complexity of ant nest structure and reflects the range of scales in which ants live their lives. The exhibit also dives into Dr. Walter Tschinkel’s method of metal casting and the ways in which metal casting reveals a complete, precise and detailed version of ant nest architecture. Dr. Tschinkel’s casts have been featured in 16 museums around the world, from Paris to Hong Kong, including two casts at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. This exhibit will only be here until December 31, 2018, so don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity.
TCC’s Fine Art Gallery opens each school year with our annual exhibit of art created by those who teach our students. The exhibit includes art by both those instructors in the Fine Art department and those who teach in the Graphic Arts area. The variety of styles and media represent the individual approach faculty members take when creating their own work.
