Inspired by the natural world, Denver artist Nicole Anona Banowetz has created a larger than life, immersive insect nursery made from sewn inflatable sculptures and assembled forms. She says, “forget that the work is art for a moment and have the sort of pure interaction you would have in nature.”

Walk amongst the cocoons and larva as you would in nature. Immerse yourself, be curious, and contribute to the life cycle of the nursery by designing your own creature. Come back to see the installation evolve over the course of the year.

Fun for kids and adults alike, The Incubation Effect is included in general admission, free for members and kids age 18 and younger.
