Kingwood is being “invaded” by some gargantuan bugs this summer!

Starting May 19th thru August 19, the art of David Rogers will fill the Kingwood Estate with awe-inspiring sculptures of insects made out of all natural materials.

We will have 10 sculptures in all: a Lady Bug, a Spider and Web, an Assassin Bug, three Ants, a Damselfly, a Dragonfly, a Praying Mantis, and a Daddy Long-Legs.

At our grand-opening on May 19th from 10am-3pm, the first 200 children will get a free prize to take home .  The BUG ZOO from Ohio State University will also be exhibiting and educating with live bugs in the Carriage House.  Free treats for all!

On June 16th, we have a special BUG DAY from 11am-4pm.  Through the Richland County Foundation, Kingwood received a Summertime Kids Grant to bring this day to you!  Kids will get a passport and get stamped at every table they stop at to learn about our friends of the gardens!  We will have Insect Olympics, a Pestaraunt, Bug Races, Bug tattoos, three showings of the movie “A Bugs Life”, and so much more!!!  Kids and their parents/guardians are FREE CSGO match bet on this day.
