STICKWORK is the signature sculpture of artist Patrick Dougherty who has created these site-specific, interactive community art installations all over the world. They are instantly recognizable by their organic, twisting forms made of sticks and whimsical silhouettes.

Dougherty’s unique works of art truly become part of the landscape, and have been described as unexpected and wild, yet elegant. He often uses materials native to the surroundings to create his transitory works of art, each unique to their location.

STICKWORK connects people to nature. Its simple concept encourages interactivity and participation from all age groups and is especially inviting to children, who immediately understand that it is a work of art to enter, play in, and explore.
