Organic Art

Artist Patrick Dougherty spent two weeks on the OSU campus in October 2011 to create the stunning stick art installation that sits in People’s Park. Dougherty received help by dozens of volunteers from the OSU community and beyond – some came from as far away as Portland to work with the artist. To create the sculpture, Dougherty and volunteers wove together thousands of branches from local trees. The sculpture will stand in People’s Park for about two years, or until it decomposes.
