"The educa- tional aspect to this project is very vital," she adds in the release. "We want to offer every- one who comes to the site the opportunity to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of Patrick's work. We're looking for energetic Page 101 people who are passionate about art and who enjoy engaging and inspiring others." Surkis points out in the news release that Dougherty's designs involve weaving and bind- ing sapling branches together to form flow- ing patterns and maze-like structures through which visitors can walk. "Patrick's wonder- fully imaginative installations are temporal works made from trees, twigs, vines and oth- er natural materials from the area," she adds. Surkis says the public will have many opportu- nities to view the artist at work as his creation evolves during the three weeks he is on-site.
