Patrick Dougherty at LBMOA

Patrick Dougherty has created a site-specific willow installation at the Long Beach Musuem of Art. He worked with local volunteers, his son, and the Museum staff and docents. Intricately weaving hundreds of willow saplings, Dougherty has shaped monumental, earthly sculptures. This special outdoor sculpture is supported in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance, who have supported Southern California artists, exhibitions, educational programs, and art-oriented, non-profit institutions for over 64 years.

Buddy Buddy is on view currently at the museum. More information can be found here.
