Sep 28, 2012 04:22PM

Internationally renowned sculptor Patrick Dougherty weaves large-scale architectural forms from trees, twigs, vines, and other natural materials. From January 7 – 26, 2013, the artist will spend three weeks in Sarasota creating one of his unique sculptures on the grounds of the historic Sarasota High School and future home of the Sarasota Museum of Art/SMOA.

“This is a remarkable opportunity for our community,” said Surkis. “Patrick has exhibited his work around the world; we’re thrilled that he is coming here for SMOA. It’s an example of the fresh ideas SMOA will be bringing to Sarasota.”

This year’s Patrick Dougherty corporate sponsor is PNC Wealth Management. “As Sarasota’s first museum dedicated to modern and contemporary art, the Sarasota Museum of Art will captivate and inspire countless imaginations,” said R. Scott Collins, senior vice president, wealth director of PNC Wealth Management.
