“Disorderly Conduct” is a sapling sculpture by Patrick Dougherty at Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. The sculpture was created over a three-week period, using saplings of red maple, gum, and persimmon harvested nearby. Students and other volunteers assisted Patrick in its construction. The final work stands sixteen feet high and covers a footprint that is 35′ x 25′. The inspiration for the work was a wasp nest found during the harvesting. Patrick noted the interlocking cells, and saw them as a symbol for community befitting the Quaker school.
