Big Art Ant

The community garden where the ant is located is in a bit of disarray. The ant is falling over and the full ant can't be seen.

Another sad case of attraction antropy!

Big Home-Made Ant

There is a large homemade sculpture of a colorful giant ant about 1.25 miles west of the Scioto River and downtown Columbus. It is in an empty lot that seems to be some type of community playground and garden. This is not the best area of town, and the house to the left of the ant has boarded windows, so daylight hours are the best time to make a visit.
