- Stickwork by Patrick Dougherty
, the North Carolina artist who creates large organic figures, houses, vases and cocoons out of sticks, has been commissioned by the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville to create an installation for the annual arts festival Artosphere 2012.
Beth Goodwin, Walton spokesperson, says Dougherty, who will create the piece from local saplings, will be in Fayetteville Aug. 24-26 to plan the piece. He'll return in May to construct the sculpture and give public talks.
Here's a piece in that ran in the New York Times last year.
