"STICKWORK ON CAMPUS"
Drive along Forsyth Boulevard,
next to Washington University (St. Louis),
and you'll see two new "buildings."
It's the result of a recent installation by art students,
under the direction and supervision of
internationally renowned sculptor, Patrick Dougherty.
Two 20-foot high branch houses were the
brain child of Dougherty, who had the students
collect 20,000 sticks and branches from the area
(mostly willow and dogwood.)
These all natural constructions were erected
and hand assembled in 3 weeks time,
and will weather naturally through the seasons.
The sculpture is entitled "Double Or Nothing."
Now THAT'S what I call a "tree house."
