Huck's Bugs



Insects -- if you can't kill them, make them into art and celebrate their presence in this world. That's the angle Tom Huck takes for his new exhibition, Bugs. Huck is renowned for his large-scale woodcuts of comically grotesque subjects, but Bugs is a specially commissioned series intended for very young audiences. Huck first created a series of woodcuts of insects commonly found at Laumeier Sculpture Park (12580 Rott Road, Sunset Hills; 314-615-5278 or Those woodcuts were then transformed into three-dimensional bugs mounted on springs that are large enough for a child to climb on and installed in Laumeier's Children's Sculpture Garden. Bugs will be on display through Sunday, February 1, 2015. Laumeier is open daily, and admission is free.
