BENDING STICKS: THE SCULPTURE OF PATRICK DOUGHERTY – SCREENED March 7
Directed by Penelope Maunsell and Kenny Dalsheimer
Bending Sticks celebrates the twenty-five year career of internationally renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty, who has created hundreds of monumental, site-specific sculptures out of nothing more than saplings. The film follows the artist and his collaborators during a year of stick work and reveals Dougherty’s process, personal story and inspirations. The heart of the film is the creation of five Dougherty commissions in different locations – inside the new wing of the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, on Main Street in Rock Hill, SC, at a private home in Chapel Hill, NC, at the Bascom Art Center in the mountains of NC, and in the gardens of Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, DC. 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.
Cinema Orange is organized by the Orange County Museum of Art and the Newport Beach Film Festival. Films curated for the series by Leslie Feibleman, director of special programs and community cinema at the Newport Beach Film Festival.
