Internationally Acclaimed Landscape Artist Patrick Dougherty to Construct One-Of-A-Kind 'Stickwork' Masterpiece at McKee Botanical Garden January 6 -24 (Excluding 16th & 17th). 

Beginning January 6, 2016, acclaimed landscape artist Patrick Dougherty will spend three weeks building one of his large-scale 'Stickwork' creations at McKee Botanical Garden.

Working with a team of volunteers, Dougherty will use tree saplings woven together to construct a site-specific sculpture within the lush, tropical surroundings of McKee. Garden visitors will be able to observe the artist at work throughout the duration of the project, and watch as the piece progresses and evolves into the final work.
