New York City, New York Oct 16, 2023 ( – The Salvator Mundi Museum of Art is proud to announce its newest exhibition, “The Beetles,” a fresh and innovative showcase that explores one of the most unexpected yet significant contributors to art history.

Before John, Paul, George, and Ringo, the most famous “Beetles” in art had only 6 legs, yet their invasions probably caused more screams over time than any concert by the British Fab Four. Set to open on October 18th, this exhibition invites visitors to discover the intriguing role played by Mediterranean wood beetles in shaping the world of art.

The exhibition delves into the extraordinary story of these diminutive wood-boring insects and their enduring impact on artworks and the art world. This showcase challenges traditional perceptions and offers a fresh perspective on the intricate connection between nature and art.

Mundi Museum curator Klaus Von Overbech noted, “Art and nature often intersect in surprising ways, and ‘The Beetles’ exhibition exemplifies this phenomenon. We are excited to shed light on the understated role played by Mediterranean wood beetles in art history and to highlight their significance as true contributors to the world of art.”

The exhibition comprises a remarkable collection of artifacts, highlighted by a reenactment of the renowned unrestored Salvator Mundi painting attributed to the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. The subtlety of the beetles’ influence on the Salvator Mundi and their impact on its conservation is a fascinating story that the exhibition unveils. Visitors will gain a newfound appreciation for the intricate relationship between art, art historians, and nature.

The exhibition doesn’t stop with the art; it offers an enlightening educational science component as well. Dive into the world of Mediterranean wood beetles, learn about their fascinating life cycle, and explore their unexpected impact on art. We even have a giant wood beetle lifelike sculpture. The exhibition includes informative panels, interactive displays, and multimedia presentations that explore the science behind Mediterranean wood beetles and their fascinating lives. It also delves into the techniques employed by art conservators to restore and protect irreplaceable masterpieces.

The Salvator Mundi Museum of Art welcomes all to embark on this enlightening journey through art history. “The Beetles” promises to broaden horizons, providing a fresh perspective on the enduring influence of nature on human creativity.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday, October 18th, and runs through the end of the year. The museum is free to all and special guided tours and educational programs are available for schools and groups by contacting the museum; making “The Beetles” an enriching experience for all and an appropriate topic for the Halloween season.
