Florida Museum of Natural History Installs Giant Ant Sculptures
Photo: Kristen Grace

The Florida Museum of Natural History installed new insect art in early July 2015. Ants are a good choice as a symbol of natural history because they are so numerous and ubiquitous. As an added bonus, the museum showed the 1954 movie “Them” about giant ants that invade the sewers of Los Angeles.

The sculptures are the work of Susan P Cochran of Palm Beach, Florida who is renown for her bronze sculptures. The ants are only on loan, so you have about 1 year to see them in their current location. Perhaps it could be a spring break destination.
