Gigantic Bug Sculptures of David Rogers Infest Arboretum

Since 1994, Long Island woodworker and sculptor David Rogers has been wowing audiences in arboretums, nature centers and botanical gardens across the country with his menagerie of dinosaur-sized insect sculptures. Made from all natural materials, the bugs’ size is suggestive of those 1950’s horror movies about gigantic mutant insects created by atomic bomb fallout. Here, Rogers’ exhibit stretches across the 92 acres of the heavily wooded arboretum in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia.
