Watch as Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden artist-in-residence Patrick Dougherty builds a large-scale, temporary sculpture of woven sticks and saplings in the Anderson Meadow; we are calling the process “Meadowmorphosis.”

Here in our second video you can see Patrick Dougherty, his assistant Andy Lynch, and volunteers from Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden mowing the site, laying out the sculpture in hose, drilling holes with an auger and placing the first sticks. The sculpture is made of young red maple saplings harvested in Chesterfield County and sweet gum saplings from Hanover County.

The sculpture, will stand as long as nature allows and is here to be enjoyed for years to come.
