Volunteers Bring Stickwork Sculpture to Life at Orenco Woods Nature Park
Artist Patrick Dougherty’s larger-than-life stick sculpture, Head Over Heels, took shape in April at Orenco Woods Nature Park thanks to the work of more than 100 volunteers – including many Hillsboro students. The commissioned sculpture, built with only local plant branches, showcases sustainability and creates a unique destination in the park.
Head Over Heels will have a lifespan of between two and four years at the nature park. Dougherty’s other work can be seen at Oregon State University and the Portland Children’s Museum, or online at www.Stickwork.net.
