I just love public art installations.
At the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Patrick Doherty recently constructed his latest installation, “Natural History“. It is a wonderful set of structures built out of sticks and branches, perfectly suited for exploration and play by little ones.
Unlike most public art installations, Doherty’s work will be allowed to change with the weather and seasons. It survived the recent tornado, with nary a stick out of place.
New Kid loved running around and through the huts and it will be fun to see how the installation changes over the next year. What a wonderful way to explore the intersection of nature, art, architectural engineering and environmental science.
