Polyglot Theatre Ants
Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
Find three giant ants organizing large breadcrumbs throughout the Park and Mad. Sq. Art’s new interactive exhibition City in the Grass by artist Leonardo Drew. Juxtaposed with Drew’s metaphorical cityscape, viewers will witness these larger-than-life insects disrupt the everyday as they unfold a world of built patterns.
The ants may need some assistance with arranging their crumbs. All are welcome to join in on the fun, interact, and observe this enchanting investigation into the nature of work, perception of scale, and our relationship with the environment.
Catch the ants busy at work throughout the Park at 11:30 am, 12:30 pm, 3:30 pm & 5 pm. Stick around for MoMath’s Million Millimeter March for MoMath at 6 pm.
