Patrick Dougherty, known for his woven sapling site-specific installations, will be working on Prexy's Pasture the next few weeks to create a work for Sculpture: A Wyoming Invitational. Stacks of cut saplings under nearby trees are kept wet so the twigs stay pliable and ready for use. Post holes have been filled with structural saplings and shaping the sculpture is underway. Dougherty, along with a number of assistants and volunteers, will be on location every day for the next few weeks to create and complete the work.
