Wheaton says farewell to Twisted Sisters sculpture
Posted on August 13, 2012
We quietly bid farewell to our beloved Twisted Sisters. The Patrick Dougherty sculpture sustained some serious damage this summer and upon close inspection we reluctantly decided to remove it for safety reasons. The piece has been a permanent fixture and focal point on campus since 2008 and we will certainly miss it.
Again, warm thanks to everyone who participated in the construction, enjoyment, documentation and maintenance of the Sisters over the last four years—particularly:
- Tripp Evans
- The Evelyn Danzig Haas '35 Visiting Artists Program
- The Department of Art and Art History
- The over sixty students, faculty, staff and community folks involved in the construction.
- Elita Pastra-Landis
- Jessica Kuszaj
- The Buildings and Grounds staff
- The Office of Communications
- The Office of Admissions
- David Fox, the Department of Theatre and Dance Studies, and the cast of Macbeth (spring, 2009)
- Chris Hyde
- John Sullivan
- Craig Kilburn
- Mark Mello
- Steve Kelly
- The staff of the Physical Plant
- Henry White
- Kevin Roffi
- The many faculty and staff who used the sculpture in a variety of ways to enhance classes, events, campus tours and lunch hours.
And finally... all the mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and nannies who made Twisted Sisters one of the top play-date destinations in Southeastern Massachusetts!
