PPC is very excited to announce that internationally-acclaimed artist Patrick Dougherty will be coming to Austin in January 2018 to create one of his majestic Stickwork sculptures in Pease Park utilizing locally-harvested tree saplings at a location along Shoal Creek.
Mr. Dougherty has a 30-year track record for building his Stickworksculptures at prominent museums, public parks, and college campuses all over the world. He has received numerous awards for his work, including a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. He has been featured in the New York Times and the Princeton Architectural Press published a book highlighting his work.
Each piece takes roughly three weeks to construct and utilizes volunteer labor in harvesting materials. The installation will remain on display in Pease Park for several years and will become an instant Austin landmark sparking the imagination of old and young park patrons and passersby.
