Last week Jacob Dahlgren delivered his sculpture, CONSTRUCTING A NEW WORLD, at Barkely Village. As a child growing up in Sweden, Dahlgren imagined and drew the trees from which tropical or exotic fruits would grow. This sculpture combines his early imagination with his ability to create abstract objects. The sculpture is sited at the corner of Barkley Boulevard and Newmarket Street. We are proud to be part of this effort.
Later in the week, Jacob conducted a series of workshops and led a group of adventurous participants in his performance, DEMONSTRATION, departing from the Whatcom Museum Lightcatcher building, going by the Bellingham Farmer's Market, the Port (old Georgia Pacific site, and returning to where we started.
