Patrick Dougherty's Twisted Sisters
During the last two decades, Dougherty has built over 150 sculptural works constructed of tree saplings throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. A lecture, opening reception and dedication, culminated a three-week residency, during which the artist worked directly with students on a site-specific sculpture for Wheaton's campus.
We were very fortunate to have been able to enjoy Twisted Sisters on campus from Fall 2008-August 13, 2012, when it had to be removed due to structural damage.
