Patrick Dougherty “Stickwork” Installation Build Begins June 4

After several years of planning, the Town of Vail’s Art in Public Places welcomes renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty to Vail on Monday, June 4. The artist will work daily (except June 16 & 17) through June 22 to create a monumental "Stickwork" installation in Ford Park. Nestled between the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater and the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens, it will be highly accessible for all to enjoy.

Over this three week period, volunteers from around Colorado, Utah, and as far as New Hampshire are participating in the build. Materials for the installation have been collected from a private ranch property in Leadville, Sylvan Lake State Park and various construction sites around Vail. We invite the public to enjoy the progress of this installation build during this time.

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
