The natural world has always inspired the work of artists and designers. A new exhibit at UC Davis highlights the relationship between insects and design, covering the ways humans take aspects of design directly from nature to create beautiful, useful materials. The exhibit also illustrates how insects actually help in the manufacturing of such items, as they produce the necessary raw materials. An opening reception will be held 1/11, and visitors can see the exhibit through 4/22. One Shields Avenue in Davis, Design Museum (Cruess Hall, Room 124),
