Day 4 with Dougherty: Setting the Base

The base sticks are set! Today was spent drilling 60 holes into the build site- about 2 feet deep, where the large strawberry guava sapling base will outline Dougherty’s sculpture- and setting the initial trees into place. Take a look:

Only 15 days until the unveiling and blessing of the final sculpture: Friday, September 23 at 5:00 pm/ FREE at Hui No`eau. Don't forget, there's still plenty of time to get involved over the next 2 weeks: volunteer, take a class, rent Hui space for a party or special event, attend an artist talk, join us for a special dinner with Dougherty, and more! Take a look at the program web page here.

Drill, baby, drill!
