Art Intersects with Science in DUAL NATURE at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia

Dr. Daniel Otte, the Academy of Natural Sciences' curator of entomology, has described over 1500 insect species, and recorded the songs of crickets from all over the world in a new exhibition at the Academy. WRTI's Susan Lewis considers the art and science of DUAL NATURE: SCIENCE ILLUSTRATIONS OF DAN OTTE, on view until December 4th.

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
