Meandering Maggots Make Art

Here’s a unique artistic opportunity for students in Sacramento, Calif: create art using maggots. Entomologist Rebecca O'Flaherty wants students to love maggots as much as she does, so she lets them dip the insects in paint. The maggots make art by crawling across the canvas trailing the colors of the rainbow. NPR's All Things Considered reports that students seem to lose their squeamishness early on in the study of the canvases they are creating.
