Winged Tapestries: Moths At Large
The Arthur Ross Terrace will be closed this morning, Tuesday, October 21, for a private cultural observance. You many observe smoke and/or fire coming from the Terrace at that time. The FDNY has been notified in advance, and all safety precautions are in place. The Terrace will reopen at 1 pm.
Witness the arresting beauty and surprising diversity of moths in a presentation of more than 30 large-format prints by Canadian photographer Jim des Rivières. Des Rivières creates these larger-than-life images by scanning each moth at high resolution to reveal unexpected colors and intricate patterns.
Winged Tapestries: Moths at Large, featuring the art of Jim des Rivières, is produced by the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Canada.
The presentation of Winged Tapestries at the American Museum of Natural History is made possible by the generosity of
the Arthur Ross Foundation.
