Whatchamacallit: Natural Art

January 12, 2000 – August 15, 2001

Natural History Museum
10th and Constitution Ave., NW
Washington, DC

Location: Ground Floor, outside Atrium Cafe

On view is an environmental sculpture of entwined maple saplings -- approximately 8-1/2 feet high -- created on site by North Carolina artist Patrick Dougherty. Starting from a basic sketch, the artist works spontaneously -- reacting to the space, his materials, and visitors who watch him at work. Photographs of the work in progress are also on view.
