Blackfoot Pathways: Sculpture in the Wild

North Carolina-based artist Patrick Dougherty has gained an international reputation for his natural-wood structures and he has created hundreds of monumental, site-specific sculptures around the world. Patrick's work is constructed from saplings gathered from local sources and shaped into massive, swirling forms as high as 40 feet. His work engages the public to participate in the making. Community members will work with Patrick over the 3 week residency to create a large-scale sculptural installation made from willow saplings harvested in the Blackfoot Valley.
