New Patrick Dougherty Installation Coming to Reston, VA

A new  public art installation is coming to Town Square Park in Reston Town Center. On April 25, 2015, there will be an unveiling of a new Patrick Dougherty sculpture. Patrick Dougherty is internationally known for his monumental site-specific works. Like many of his other 230 plus environmental sculptures, Mr. Doughtery’s installation will explore primitive building techniques and the ephemeral-qualities of natural material. Tree saplings will be harvested by the truckload in order to construct this installation, which is expected to remain on-site for at least two years. The project is seeking volunteers to harvest saplings and help with construction. For more information about the project, follow the link here.
