Artist Jennifer Angus presents Magicicada, taking inspiration from the museum’s cicada collection — one of the world’s largest. Angus has created an immersive environment full of exquisite and ornamental patterns and imaginative vignettes, unexpectedly created with hundreds of preserved insects. Join the artist for an intimate discussion on creating other worlds and the power of the unexpected.

Zoom link will be provided upon registration. 

Jennifer Angus: Magicicada is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Staten Island Museum is supported in part by public funds provided through the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and by the New York State Council on the Arts.
