Patrick Doughtery Collegetown Installation

To inaugurate the CCA CornellPublic Installation Series to bring a major Contemporary Artist installation tp Cornell - the CCA invited artist Patrick Dougherty to create a series of public sculptures on Sheldon Court Plaza, Collegetown. Dougherty was engaged because of the "sustainable/all-natural" material quality of his work - he utilizes maple and willow saplings as the total structure of his pieces - and for the extremely public nature of his production technique - the artist engages volunteers and communicates directly with the public as he stitches his pieces together during the 3-week construction period.
The Installation will be on view from Sept 21, 2006, until May 8, 2007. Still Photography: Julie Magura Project Sponsors: STELLA'S / OLIVIA and the Hilton Garden Inn Ithaca
