Past Exhibitions :: Farmers, Warriors, Builders: The Hidden Life of Ants

Saturday, January 29, 2011 - Saturday, April 9, 2011
Photography Gallery


Small yet abundant, with complex and wildly diverse lifestyles, ants are everywhere, living lives mostly hidden from our view. What if we could see into their world . . . on their level? Now, with the aid of a macro lens and the insights of ant expert and photographer Dr. Mark Moffett, Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibitions Services, and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History present the world of ants. Moffett’s stunning macro photographs tell incredible stories about the lives of ants—hunting, communicating, dealing with disease and agriculture—and chronicle the work of entomologists in the field.

This exhibition is organized by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibitions Services.
