You can come to the American University Museum to see local artist Joan Danziger's latest exhibit, Inside the Underworld, which explores the magical realm of beetles. The collection of ornately-decorated beetle sculptures is up through December 16th, and there will be a gallery talk this Saturday with museum curator Jack Rasmussen, who will discuss the exhibit's deeper meaning.
