What’s On

Each year Weston Museum plays host to a number of events which provide opportunities for both enthusiasts and families to enjoy a great day out.

Microsculpture – The Insect Photography of Levon Biss @ Weston Museum
May 18 @ 10:00 – Sep 15 @ 17:00


The Insect Photography of Levon Biss

Microsculpture is a ground breaking project by the British photographer Levon Biss. It presents insect specimens from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History like never before.  These images reveal an unexpected and often breathtaking beauty and make visible the many intricate adaptations to the form of insects – what entomologists call their microsculpture.

Microsculpture is a unique exhibition that presents insects like never before. The clarity and detail in the up to three metre prints brings normally unseen beauty to the audience, allowing them to study these stunning creatures in minute detail. The exhibition provides unique visual experience and celebrates the beauty of the natural world.
