Twigonometry, Patrick Dougherty’s fascinating twig sculpture on the Bald Spot, came down almost four years after it was erected by Carleton staff and volunteers. But it didn’t go away without a proper goodbye. A farewell ice cream social in honor of the sculpture was attended by students, faculty, and staff along with many families from the surrounding neighborhood.

Festivities included brief remarks by Director of Exhibitions Laurel Bradley, ice cream for everyone, and balloons for children. Many in attendance placed goodbye notes inside the branches of the sculpture.
