Tower Hill to Host Largest Outdoor Exhibit in Their 30 Year History
Friday, July 01, 2016
"Here at Tower Hill we strive to show our visitors the value of plants and the impact nature can have on our lives. We're thrilled to experience Patrick Dougherty's works up close and to see the power of plants through his unique perspective," said Tower Hill interim CEO Suzanne Maas.
Over this summer, visitors to Worcester county will have the rare opportunity to see the newest works of internationally acclaimed artist Patrick Dougherty at the College of the Holy Cross and Tower Hill Botanic Garden.
The first installation has been commissioned by Tower Hill in Boylston, Mass, after which Dougherty will serve as the 2106-17 Arts Trancending Borders artist in residence at Holy Cross.
In each location, Dougherty will create a site specific installation with the help of local volunteers. Volunteers will receive instruction from Dougherty, and then have the opportunity to work with him, taking part in the construction.
“We are very excited to have Patrick Dougherty’s large-scale installation grace our campus. The work, which is certain to evoke a sense of home and community, is collaborative art-making at its finest and will require the assistance of many volunteers. Students, faculty, and staff from a wide range of departments will help in the creation. We invite members of the community to join in or observe,” says Lynn Kremer, director of Arts Transcending Borders at Holy Cross.
