Humans are glorified copycats, drawing inspiration from the world around them and replicating it for personal use. Consider Velcro, a fastener that works like tiny plant burrs. It’s one of many ways the natural world plays a part in modern life. And that’s the focus of a new exhibition at Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 West Rio Salado Parkway.

See “Biomimicry: Nature Inspired Design” between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, June 14, inside The Gallery at TCA. The free show is a mix of art and science, addressing the ways humans incorporate elements of the natural world in their designs.

Participating artists include Jose Benavides, who creates cactus-shaped sculpture using discarded license plates, and Christine Lee, who uses wood scrims to create elaborate, large-scale designs. The free show is on view through Saturday, August 26.
