On Thursday, March 22, a Stickwork sculpture designed by renowned artist Patrick Dougherty, was unveiled at the Chapman Green Park in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The sculpture is part of a project initiated by the Urban Core Art Project (UCAP) to revitalize the space, and Gibbs College of Architecture Urban Design Studio students have been coordinating placemaking efforts for the Urban Core Art Project.

“They organized the community volunteers working with artists Patrick and Sam Dougherty and helped build the piece,” said Shawn Schaefer, Urban Design Studio director. “In addition, they hosted a picnic at the park during the construction with music by the Klondike Bluegrass band and food by Bakery 66, a local food start-up.”
