Rowan University Art Gallery presents BallengĂ©e’s light emitting sculpture Love Motel for Insects, in partnership with Freedom Prep Charter School and Virtua Camden, at 1000 Atlantic Ave. in Camden NJ. Standing 12’ high by 15’ long, Love Motel for Insects is an ongoing series of public art installations intended to construct situations between humans and arthropods. The works use ultra-violet lights on large sculpted canvases to attract flying moths and create an opportunity for public interactions with nocturnal arthropods, which are not often seen. The installation is on view through March 2018.
