Nesting: Jonathan Brilliant's coffee stir-stick sculpture

Posted By on Mon, Mar 1, 2010 at 10:12 AM

Leslie Peacock's got the lowdown on a massive sculpture project about to happen at Ouachita Baptist.

South Carolina artist Jonathan Brilliant will begin assembling coffee stir-sticks into a giant sculpture tomorrow in the Hammons Gallery of Mabee Fine Arts Building at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia. Brilliant’s “Have Sticks Will Travel Tour” started last May in Charleston; he’ll have built sculptures in 10 cities by the time it wraps up next September in North Carolina. He refers to his assemblages of stir sticks as being part of his “Goldsworthy (as in natural materials sculpture Andy Goldsworthy) of the coffee shop project.”

Brilliant will work on the sculpture every day — sometimes day and night, the OBU press office says — through March 10 and the finished product will be on exhibit March 11 through April 1. A reception is set for 2 to 4 p.m. March 11 in the gallery.
