David Rogers' BIG BUGS Exhibit
The Morris Arboretum
Now through August 31
Philadelphia, PA - $
Visitors to Morris Arboretum may think nature is playing a joke on them as Big Bugs spring to life all over the Arboretum’s 92-acre garden. These amazing ‘bugs’ are the creation of Long Island sculptor, David Rogers. Made mostly from found materials, primarily trees and plants that have fallen and died, each Big Bug is a unique creation with its own whimsical character. Visitors will have to explore the entire Morris Arboretum garden to discover them all. The bugs are designed to awe and to educate, reminding us in a big way about the vital role that insects play in the environment, and of their diversity.
