The All Creatures Great and Small solo exhibit may have a huge 'ew' factor considering that it centers around wall art using (gasp!) insects, but it also focuses on feelings of respect, consideration and unique beauty. It sheds a different light on these otherwise creepy crawlers, showing that they can do more than simply scare us into screeching, dancing fools.

Created by textile artist Jennifer Angus, the All Creatures Great and Small solo exhibit features kaleidoscopic patterns using thousands of brightly colored insects. According to Angus, "part of [her] work is the rehabilitation of the image of insects -- that insects are so vitally important."

Stunning and unique, the All Creatures Great and Small solo exhibit is currently showing at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles. If you are in town, I suggest you check it out. You may be surprised at how your perception of bugs will change. Stats for Insect Wall Art Trending: Older & Chilly
