The Romance of Ants
A myrmecological comic brings entomologist Corrie Moreau’s journey to life
A graphic-novel-style narrative is at the heart of The Romance of Ants, a temporary exhibit at The Field Museum in Chicago. Part of an effort to introduce visitors to the people who lead research at the museum, the narrative tells the story of Corrie Moreau, an entomologist and assistant curator at The Field. Alexandra Westrich, an artist who works in Moreau’s laboratory, created the drawings. Matt Matcuk, the museum’s exhibition development director, wrote the text.
