Join Crystal Maier in Butterfly & Beetle Pinning

March 17, 2017 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Tank

Join Crystal Maier, beetle expert and Manager of the Field’s insect collections, will lead a butterfly and beetle pinning. Chat with Crystal about entomology, what the Field’s massive collection of insects is used for, and bring home your very own pinned insect at the end of the night.

While The Backroom will remain open to regular bar foot traffic during our events and discussions, seating for them is first come, first served. For this particular event, the Field Museum is providing 50 insects for pinning split between 2 sessions. Guests will leave with their specimen! Following this workshop, enjoy a Gutter Butter (Logan Bay & Ben Fasman) DJ Set.
