Day 9 with Dougherty: Meet & Greet

Today's Brown Bag Lunch event featured a meet & greet with artist Patrick Dougherty and preliminary overview of how the Stickwork sculpture will develop toward its completion in just 9 short days. Guests enjoyed a homemade meal by board members Shannon Hoekstra & Tim Garcia and eagerly signed up as volunteers for today's afternoon shift. We had a great turnout, with more than 20 pair of hands on deck as we weaved 'til our heart's content!

Don't forget tomorrow's artist talk & panel discussion with Dougherty and friends, an intimate occasion to learn about the artist's 30-year history doing this work and to contribute to a communal dialogue about why & how artists and environmentalists can activate social change by working together.
Pass it on!
