Play Time

Skye Heeren and her son Weston were on a bike ride on campus when they came upon Patrick Dougherty's sculpture created from saplings. Weston thought it was a great place to play "Marco Polo". Punctuated by doorways and skylights, Weston and Skye look forward to returning to the scultpure at night to lay on blankets in the scultpure and view the heavens. Inspired by Dougherty's work, Weston said he wants to be an artist when he grows up!

Thanks to Skye for sharing images and stories about Weston's and her experience with Patrick Dougherty's sculpture.
