Consider all the living creatures that live in colonies--bats, bees, termites, vultures, antelopes, even humans. Visitors are invited to explore the forms and characteristics of swarms, colonies, and habitations and draw connections to humanity's social nature and our vision of a communal utopia with local Pittsburgh artist Maria Mangano.
