Description:

Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty


In a career spanning four continents and three decades, internationally acclaimed environmental artist Patrick Dougherty has created over two hundred majestic sculptures out of nothing more than saplings. Bending Sticks offers an intimate portrait of the artist. The film follows Dougherty and his collaborators during a year of “stickwork” revealing his creative process, his inspirations, his thoughts about the temporary nature of his work, and his unusual personal story.  The film will be followed by a Q&A with Katherine Hough, Chief Curator, Palm Springs Art Museum.
