Stickwork at Mounts Botanical Garden
30,000 pounds of willow branches can be AMAZING! Club Braman hosted a wine and charcuterie reception at Mounts Botanical Garden celebrating the return of renowned environmental artist Patrick Dougherty. Club members enjoyed red and white wines and personal charcuterie boxes.
From Mounts Botanical Garden website:
Known for his Stickwork projects that combine both his carpentry skills and love of nature, Dougherty’s work evolved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental scale environmental works that require saplings by the truckload. Over the last 30 years, he has built over 250 of these works from Scotland to Japan to Brussels, from Miami to Cincinnati, including a very popular exhibition at Mounts in 2019, which was known by two names—Twisted pre-opening, and Cutting Corners, during its year long run.
“Each one of Dougherty’s structures are completely original, as will be his final Stickwork at Mounts,” says Rochelle Wolberg, Curator-Director at Palm Beach County’s oldest and largest 20-acre public garden, located just minutes from downtown West Palm Beach. “These massive, all natural structures take three weeks to hand-assemble and will be an interactive and environmental experience, perfect for adults and children to wander through, admire, and become part of a living art experience.”
