Dougherty is at DePauw to create a site-specific environmental sculpture, with the help of University students and local residents.

The newspaper adds, "Helping is volunteer Amanda Strong, Greencastle. The sculpture is being made of native materials, and will be completed in time for a dedication at 5 p.m. Monday, East College Yellow Leaves.gifNov. 19. Dougherty said he has had a lot of good help on the project so far, which depends on volunteers to share in the sculpture's creation. He said the sculpture should last two years."

DePauw students, faculty and staff members are invited and encouraged to share in the creation of the sculpture, which is believed to be the first outdoor environmental site-specific installation in DePauw's history. Volunteers are needed from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily through November 19. For information, or to sign up, send an e-mail to mscott@depauw.edu.
