CHAMBERSBURG >> As part of Wilson College's annual Arts Day celebration on Oct. 14, renowned artist Patrick Dougherty — who with volunteer help is creating one of his "stickworks" sculptures on campus over the course of October — will present an artist's talk at 7 p.m. in the Brooks Science Complex auditorium.

Dougherty, who will also sign copies of his 2010 monograph-memoir, Stickwork, will talk about his work, materials, history and inspiration as an environmentally conscious artist making ephemeral sculptures from locally harvested materials.

Arts Day will also feature two screenings of a documentary film about Dougherty entitled Bending Sticks: The Sculpture of Patrick Dougherty. The film will be shown at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. in Room 200 in Lortz Hall.

Arts Day at Wilson is an educational, fun-filled day of free events that encourage everyone to appreciate and celebrate interdisciplinary arts, take note of the impact of the arts on our daily lives, and explore the critical and creative nature of the visual and performing arts. All events are free and open to the public.
