NYC Parks is pleased to present Notched Bodies: Insects in Contemporary Art at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park. The exhibition features eleven contemporary artists who offer probing personal interpretations on the importance of insects through a variety of media.

While insects are often seen as pests or invaders, their critical role in our ecosystem and daily lives is increasingly clear as urban farming, gardening, and the impact of syndromes like Colony Collapse Disorder become prevalent.

These contemporary artists highlight insects for their brilliant colors and forms, unique behaviors, environmental significance, as well as social parallels and cultural commentary.
