< What Hums In You >

Cicadas appear in many of Marilyn’s works.  In this print, Marilyn reflects on the life cycle of periodic cicadas
that live underground for 13 or 17 years and emerge, amazingly all at the same time,
to mate, lay eggs and die within several weeks.  In those weeks their huge numbers and dramatic behaviors
put them at center stage in their environment.  Just as the biological makeup of the periodic cicada
compels it to live as it does, “What Hums in You” is the inner melody that makes each creature,
each person the unique being they are.
