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.
