Red Osier Drift, a winter stick garden

installation art

To provide color and presence during the winter months Hood Design created Red Osier Run for the street-front garden of Old South Church in Boston's Copley Square.

Nearly 700 1.75" × 1.75" × 7.5' spruce sticks were stained in three shades of red casein paint by a team of volunteers. A blanket of fresh snow provides a dramatic counterpoint.
