 The Big Naturals
If you have not seen the only Patrick Dougherty installation in Arkansas, The Big Naturals, it is well worth the trip. The work is located adjacent to the Baum Gallery,  and was created by the artist in the fall of 2014 with the help of over 300 community volunteers. A video of the sculpture’s installation can be viewed here:
