"Farmers, Warriors, Builders: The Hidden Life of Ants" will make its public debut inside the Suzanne M. Lacy Education Center at the museum tomorrow! Staff are putting the finishing touches on the exhibit for this evening's members-only reception. The museum's newest exhibit allows visitors to view the world at an ant's level through the macro lens photography and insight of famed ant expert and photographer, Dr. Mark Moffett, as well as witness the incredible world of ants first-hand through an elaborate leafcutter ant colony. "Farmers, Warriors, Builders: The Hidden Life of Ants" was donated to VMNH for educational purposes by the Smithsonian Institution at the end of its national tour in 2016. The original tour ran from January 2011 to September 2016.
