Who knew a bunch of gargantuan-size insects could be so lovable? And approachable?
You’ll be an instant fan of David Rogers and his “Big Bugs” outdoor exhibit at Orlando’s Leu Gardens. Running now through April 15, the traveling exhibit uses art infused with science to educate people of all ages on the important role insects play in the environment.
There are three 25-foot long ants marching up the hillside, a 100-pound spider spinning its web and a daddy long legs standing 10 feet high that you can walk under!
Since its debut in 1994, the “Big Bugs” have toured botanical gardens all over the U.S. as a featured exhibit. Rogers uses all-natural materials such as trees, saplings and branches to make the larger-than-life sculptures.
The “Big Bugs” exhibit is free with paid admission to Leu Gardens. Adult tickets are $10, kids K-12 are $3 and children 4 years and under get in free.
