‘Stickwork’ Sculpture Buildout

Jan 8, 2020 - Jan 26, 2020

In January of 2020,  internationally acclaimed landscape artist Patrick Dougherty, the ‘Stickman’, will return to McKee to create another hand-crafted masterpiece made exclusively for the Garden. In January 2016, Patrick and a team of volunteers from McKee Botanical Garden constructed “The Royals” over a three week period.  The sculpture featured three tall towers nestled among the stately palms in the Royal Palm Grove. “The Royals” graced the Garden for two and a half years until succumbing to the weather and nature’s elements.

In January 2020, Patrick Dougherty will once again design a one-of-a-kind sculpture woven from willow saplings harvested from a farm in upstate New York.  A team of McKee volunteers will work alongside Patrick to construct what begins as a figment of his imagination and evolves into a masterpiece for all to enjoy.

Hours of Admission:  Tuesday-Saturday 10 am – 5 pm, Sunday Noon to 5 pm.  (The last admission ticket is sold at 4 pm).  Closed Monday.

General Admission rates apply:  $15 Adults, $13 Seniors, $10 Children ages 2-12. McKee members and children under 2 free.
