The Big Bugs have landed in Sandwich



You’ll have to forgive the pun, but there really has been quite a bit of buzz around the Heritage Museums & Gardens new exhibit of David Rogers’s Big Bugs. The sculptor uses whole trees, cut green saplings, dry branches, and other forest materials to create 25-foot-long ants and dragonflies with 17-foot wingspans. The Heritage exhibit features three ants, a dragonfly and damselfly, an assassin bug, a praying mantis, a spider on a web, a ladybug, and a daddy longlegs, all scattered thoughout the grounds of the Sandwich museum. The Big Bugs are busy: Since 1994, they have toured botanical gardens and nature centers — even Disney World — promoting preservation and conservation.

HERITAGE MUSEUMS & GARDENS 67 Grove St., Sandwich. 508-888-3300, Daily 10 a.m.-6 p.m. through Sept. 1, then 10 a.m.-5 p.m. through Oct. 26.
