Patrick Dougherty at Wegerzyn Gardens

 Patrick Dougherty is a sculpture artist who makes large scale sculptures out of intertwined sticks and branches. The Wegerzyn Gardens metropark currently has one of his installations which resembles a winding, whimsical tunnel or playhouse. 

The other day we got a few inches of snow, and I thought it might be interesting to get some winter pictures of the sculpture and the gardens under a blanket of white snow. Enjoy!
