BENDING STICKS: THE SCULPTURE OF PATRICK DOUGHERTY (USA, 2012, 55 min.)

Washington, D.C. Premiere Internationally renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty has created hundreds of monumental site-specific sculptures out of nothing more than saplings. Celebrating the artist’s 25-year career, this documentary follows Dougherty and his collaborators during a year of stick work, revealing Dougherty’s process, personal story and inspirations. The film explores the creation of five Dougherty commissions in different locations: inside the new wing of the North Carolina Museum of Art, on Main Street in Rock Hill, S.C., at a private home in Chapel Hill, N.C., at the Bascom Art Center in the mountains of North Carolina and in the gardens of Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C. At each location, viewers see how Dougherty and many others transform piles of sticks into energetic lines and exuberant forms. Dougherty’s projects invite collaboration and engage communities in the making and viewing of his very public art.  Directed by Penelope Maunsell and Kenny Dalsheimer.

Introduced by John Beardsley, Director, Garden and Landscape Studies, Dumbarton Oaks.
