Museum of Fine Arts: The Grasshopper and The Ant and Other Stories
From the page to the exhibit halls, the Museum of Fine Arts immersive new installation brings one of Aesop’s most known fables to staggering life. Renowned artist Jennifer Angus has worked for more than a year to realize “The Grasshopper and the Ant, and Other Stories.” Her meticulous attention to detail is evident in each gallery at the MFA. She creates dramatic and startlingly beautiful effects by incorporating large, brilliantly-colored insects into elaborate patterns inspired by Victorian wallpaper and nineteenth-century book illustration. For this immersive, MFA-commissioned project, Angus will use Aesop’s fable ‘The Grasshopper and the Ant’ as its starting point.
