Dan Maxwell travels to the Museum of East Texas in Lufkin to speak with Executive Director J.P. McDonald, entomologist Dr. David Kulhavy and artists Charles Jones about the A Forest Insect Alphabet exhibit.
This exhibit features framed pages of the book, A Forest Insect Alphabet. This book was hand printed and hand bound at La Nana Creek Press, Nacogdoches, Texas. Charles Jones created the color woodcuts and black and white engravings. Entomologist, Dr. David Kulhavy provided the scientific descriptions and wrote the quatrains to the songs about forest insects.
The Museum of East Texas sets to life its exhibit, "A Forest Insect Alphabet" in a combined program involving a printmaker, entomologist and folk singer. The program "art-science-music" is Sunday at 2 p.m. The exhibit runs through Sept. 4. Dan Maxwell reports.
