 Past Exhibition

Patrick T. Dougherty: Colonnade (Site-Specific Installation)
November 1995–May 1996
see larger image   back to list   see current exhibitions   see upcoming exhibitions

Using local elm and dogwood saplings, Dougherty created five enormous cocoon-like structures that challenged the viewer to determine whether they were manmade or rare natural occurrences. During a three-week residency, and using no glue, wire, or rope, he "wove" together the Colonnade and the Museum's entrance columns. Passersby visited repeatedly during the installation to track the progress and talk with the artist as he worked.
