I walked by the other day on the way to meet up with an old teacher and was pretty impressed by the magnitude of the project. Students are helping him, including a friend who told me it’s moving very quickly.
Dougherty uses locally harvested tree saplings to create his large Stickworks. Feel welcome to watch Dougherty work throughout the month. Volunteers are still needed to facilitate the construction of the sculpture. An exhibition featuring work from two decades of the artist’s career will be presented in the glass cases of Hege Library through April 15th. For more info contact Terry Hammond (336-316-2438).
