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.
