Stick Artist Patrick Dougherty Coming to Dumbarton Oaks– Volunteer!

Back at the beginning of April I had me some scoop: Stick artist Patrick Dougherty would be coming to Dumbarton Oaks to create one of his famous art installations sometime in September of 2010. I spoke with the wonderful Assistant to the Director at Dumbarton, Jane Padelford, who promised to let me know when the call for volunteers went out. Well brothers & sisters, it’s happening:

Dear David, I know you called a while back asking to be put on the list to volunteer on the Patrick Dougherty garden installation at Dumbarton Oaks, so I wanted to give you first dibs. Please see attached the call for volunteers for the Patrick Dougherty garden installation which shall take place September 1 to 21. Mr. Dougherty is a renowned sculptor who creates artworks out of sticks. Please forward to anyone you think may be interested in volunteering. The application form is attached as both a pdf and word .doc format. Many thanks.

I’m trying to figure out a way to host the application form on my site here so you can download them yourselves, in the meantime feel free to drop Jane an email and get the form sent to you. Hope to see you there! EDIT: Here is the PDF Form
