Visit Marks the Farewell to “So Inclined”
Middlebury, VT—Patrick Dougherty, whose enchanting community-created sculptural project So Inclined has embellished the Route 30 entrance to Middlebury College’s Mahaney Center for the Arts for the past four years, will return to campus on Friday, October 28. Dougherty will discuss his world-wide projects and commissions since that time in a 4:30 p.m. talk in Room 221 of the Mahaney Center for the Arts. The lecture is free and open to the public.
All are invited to post their memories of the construction process or subsequent visits to a blog set up on the College’s website: http://blogs.middlebury.edu/soinclined/. The blog will be live through the month of December.
Dougherty is the subject of a recent monograph, Stickwork, which lists all of his projects including Middlebury’s So Inclined. The book will be available for purchase and signing by the artist following his talk. A video by Daniel Houghton, a Middlebury alumnus from the class of 2006, documents the creation of the sculpture and will be shown in the lower lobby of the Mahaney Center for the Arts during the week preceding and following Dougherty’s presentation.
