Dougherty will begin work on the project -- which will be made of native materials and be located north of the Memorial Student Union Building -- during the month of November. Volunteers are needed to assist the artist with the project. (at left: Max Azria Melrose Avenue Boutique, Los Angeles, California; photo by David Calicchio)

Over the past two decades, Dougherty has created more than 150 sculptures throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. His most recent commission was completed at Vermont's Middlebury College last month. Some of his Dougherty's other noted commissions have included the Morton Arboretum in suburban Chicago, Cornell University, Brown University, and the Willow Project in Scotland.
