Discover the Underestimated Artistry of Patrick Dougherty During This All-Out Exhibit

Located in West Palm Beach, Mounts Botanical Garden provides the best horticultural and botanical information available related to South Florida’s unique plants and environment. Currently, Mounts Botanical Garden is proud to present “Twisted: Patrick Dougherty Entwined”.

“Twisted: Patrick Dougherty Entwined” will feature original Stickwork structures by internationally renowned artist, Patrick Dougherty. This interactive and environmental exhibit offers an awe-inspiring experience for both adults and children. Dougherty will be supported by as many as 130 local volunteers who will help build the exhibition.

Patrick Dougherty is based in North Carolina and is well known for his Stickwork projects that combine both his carpentry skills and love of nature. Over the years, his work has evolved from single pieces on conventional pedestals to monumental scale environmental works that require saplings by the truckload. Dougherty has built over 250 of these works over the last 30 years and has become internationally acclaimed.

His sculptures have been seen in Scotland, Japan, Brussels and all over the U.S., including two Florida gardens (McKee Botanical in Melbourne and Pinecrest Gardens in Miami). His most recent massive project was at Cincinnati’s Taft Museum of Art. With so much to discover, don’t miss this chance to become part of living art!

Even though Glades Diamond Apartments in Belle Glade, Florida provides you with all of the comfort, convenience, and entertainment you could possibly desire, we encourage our residents to venture outside of our apartment community and explore all that the city has to offer!
