Ad Libs: New art takes shape on Newell Road

Original post made by Rebecca Wallace, arts & entertainment editor of the Palo Alto Weekly, on Jan 19, 2011

Curious people are already peering into artist Patrick Dougherty's new environmental sculpture on the Palo Alto Art Center grounds, and it's not scheduled to be finished for a week and a half. But it's hard to resist.

It will stay there for two years. It's pretty cool, but two years is a long time.

I asked him how long it was going to stay and he told me "two years." However, the article states "Dougherty's new installation is set to stay up through Jan. 30, 2012. Most of his sapling works, he says, could last about two years, but 'wear and tear might end their life sooner." I'm guessing there might be a lot of wear and tear because it looks like a clubhouse for kids. That's pretty neat that Palo Alto has brought him out here from the E. Coast.

I remember seeing this on the news. Wonder if birds will start making it a temporary home, might even make it more fun to explore!
