Garden Hosts David Rogers’ BIG BUGS Exhibit

Insects Invade on a Gargantuan Scale

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden | Botanical Research Institute of Texas brings to Fort Worth for the first time David Rogers’ Big Bugs, an exhibit of insect sculptures on a gigantic scale. The exhibit runs March 11-June 12.  

Insects outnumber us one million to one. Many live in communal groups working as one for the common good of all. Their ranks include engineers, soldiers, weightlifters, weavers, hunters, stalkers, gatherers, and even royalty. 

“When you take this remarkable and diverse group of ‘hidden gardeners’ and recreate them on a gigantic scale using all-natural materials, you have Big Bugs,” said Patrick Newman CEO and President. “The stunning effect is a role reversal of dimension and perception that kids of all ages will absolutely love.”

The sculptures are created using various combinations of whole trees, cut green saplings, dry branches and other forest materials.  Audiences will marvel or stand bug-eyed before the larger-than-life insect sculptures and gain an appreciation for these invaluable members of the animal kingdom. 

Exhibit viewing is included with the price of Garden admission. Members receive free entry. For more information, visit brit.org/bigbugs
