      David Rogers' Big Bugs
    • Wednesday, August 23, 2017
    • They're big, they're buggy, and they're here at Tyler Arboretum for the summer. Be awed and inspired by artist David Rogers' Big Bugs, 10 gigantic insect sculptures on parade through the Arboretum. Made from natural materials, they remind us in a big way of the vital role insects play in the environment. So bring your friends and family, and explore the Arboretum as you track down these oversized inhabitants of the natural world. Dotted along the 1.5 miles of the Arboretum's Scenic Loop, David Rogers' Big Bugs will amaze and delight visitors of all ages as it highlights the outsized role played by these tiny inhabitants of the natural world. Featuring enormous garden sculptures made entirely from natural materials by the Long Island artist David Rogers, Big Bugs introduces visitors to 17-ft. long dragonfly, 4-ft. wide spider in a 15-ft. web, and invites you to picnics with 25 feet long ants.
