> DESCRIPTION

During March of 2009, North Carolina artist Patrick Dougherty has 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 echoes 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 is expected to last a year or two before nature takes its course, at which time the sculpture will be destroyed per agreement with the artist.
