Patrick Dougherty: Sculpture Installation
March 01 through May 11, 2010
During March of 2009, North Carolina artist Patrick Dougherty built a site-specific sculpture on the lawn by the main entrance to the Museum. He used saplings gathered around East Montgomery to create a structure ten to twenty feet tall and thirty to fifty feet square. The sculpture echoed the shape of the brick “port cochere” that flanks the Museum’s entrance. The artist used volunteers to gather and weave the truckloads of sticks that are needed to create his signature sculptures. The art was expected to last a year or two before nature takes its course, at which time the sculpture was destroyed per agreement with the artist.
Organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
