Volunteer with Artist Patrick Dougherty
Participate in this rare opportunity to assist artist Patrick Dougherty in the creation of a unique sculpture installation at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) in January 2017!
Patrick is returning to BADM to create a new willow sculpture in the outdoor exhibit, Lookout Cove. Previously, he created installations at BADM in 2004 and 2012. BADM is thrilled to welcome him back a third time thanks to a generous grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Patrick is looking for adult volunteers to help create this new installation. Two four-hour volunteer shifts are available daily from January 9 through January 27.
Dates: January 9 – 27, 2017 (Off on January 21 & 22)
Morning Shift: 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. (Please arrive 15 minutes early)
Afternoon Shift: 1 – 5 p.m. (Please arrive 15 minutes early)
IMPORTANT: Please arrive 15 minutes early to your shift to receive instruction from the artist. Please plan on working for the full four-hour shift, rain or shine. Due to the physical nature of the work, adult volunteers only; no children can participate or be in the construction area. Come prepared and dressed for physical work with work pants, closed-toed shoes, etc.
