Renowned sculptor Patrick Dougherty will be in Sarasota for SMOA's 2013 “ARTmuse” program, January 7-26, 2013. Dougherty's imaginative monumental sculptures made of trees, twigs, vines, and other natural materials can be seen around the world. During his three-week Sarasota project, the artist will build a site-specific installation on the grounds of the historic Sarasota High School, future home of the Sarasota Museum of Art/ SMOA. The public will have many opportunities to view the artist at work and everyone is encouraged to stop by the high school to see the work in progress and witness his creation as it unfolds and evolves. The high school is located at 1001 S. Tamiami Trail in Sarasota.
