Event Description:

Starting the first week of November, the environmental artist will spearhead the creation of a temporary sculpture of woven saplings designed specifically for the grounds of ETSU and using volunteers from the campus and wider community.

“It takes a large crew to harvest the saplings and then build the work,” says Mary B. Martin School of the Arts Director Anita DeAngelis. “This is pretty exciting for us, especially because the City of Johnson City now has a public art committee … Dougherty’s process literally engages the community with all the volunteers needed. It really is public.”

Then on Nov. 18, the artist will discuss his “stick work,” as he calls it, that has taken him to college and university campuses, botanical gardens, museums, businesses and private homes worldwide, in locales as distant as Australia, Serbia and Scotland and as proximate as Nashville, Richmond and Chapel Hill, N.C., his home.
