Stickwork by Patrick Dougherty

The Fort Worth Botanic Garden | Botanical Research Institute of Texas (FWBG|BRIT) welcome nationally acclaimed artist Patrick Dougherty during the month of February as he weaves, twists and shapes a one-of-a-kind Stickwork sculpture in the Fuller Garden.

As he has done many times before at many other locations, Dougherty will take the sticks and aided by a team of volunteers, weave, wind and twist them into—what? Who knows! A hut, a nest, a cocoon, a tower, a maze—whatever Dougherty wants it to be. One thing can be certain: The resulting creation will be as unique as the Garden and as rooted in the landscape of Fort Worth, Texas.
