In 2008, internationally acclaimed sculptor, Patrick Dougherty, installed a whimsical and earthy sculptural edifice upon the northeast corner of Cache la Poudre St & Cascade Ave on the Colorado College Campus. We knew it wouldn’t last forever but we were a little saddened when we realized that they were gone.
Jessica Hunter Larsen, I.D.E.A. Space Curator at Colorado College, says: “In 2008 when artist Patrick Dougherty created one of his signature branch-and-sapling Stickworks
projects in front of Armstrong, he intended it to be temporary. He said that we would know when it was time to remove the sculptures. The last windstorm made the decision clear, and the sculptures
will soon be taken down and their component branches reused for other art and landscaping projects. We bid the Stickworks a fond farewell!”
Without much fanfare, the sculptures were removed yesterday – revealing for the first time in nigh-on 4 years a patch of earth devoid of the undulatory presence of Doughtery’s mindscapes. Goodbye Stickworks! Godspeed! If you feel so moved, please reveal your emotional response to the absence of the Stickworks in the comments section below.
