David Rogers' Big Bugs

OPENING Jun 23 2020


The public opening of David Rogers’ Big Bugs has been rescheduled for June 23. Please check back for updates.  

David Rogers' Big Bugs features tiny creatures created on a huge scale! This summer and fall, the MSV’s seven-acre gardens will be home to a 10-foot-tall daddy long legs, an 18-foot-long praying mantis, and more gargantuan bugs. The sculptures are created by artist David Rogers using various combinations of found or fallen trees, cut green saplings selectively harvested from the willow family, dry branches, and other forest material. Make plans to see Big Bugs at the MSV and discover the world of insects, the role they play in the plant world, and their interconnectedness to our lives. Big Bugs is scheduled to be at the MSV through November 15, 2020. Admission to this special traveling exhibition is free to MSV members, so join the MSV today!

Exhibition fee (includes gallery admission): $15, $10 youth (13–18) /senior (60+), $5 ages 5–12, free to ages 4 & under, and free to MSV members. Note: while MSV gallery admission is always free to ages 12 & under and free to all on Wednesdays, these free admission offers do not include David Rogers' Big Bugs.
