World-Renowned Stickwork Sculptor Patrick Dougherty Calls for Volunteers to Help with Next Art Installation at Pinecrest Gardens, Nov. 2-20.

Community volunteers enjoy rare opportunity to work alongside Dougherty and to learn the artist’s craft on the botanical stage of South Florida’s premier Cultural Arts Park

It literally takes a small village to help world-renowned sculptor and Stickwork creator, Patrick Dougherty, bring his vision and magnificent towering sculptures to life. The distinguished artist, whose work has been exhibited around the world, as well as at major galleries and museums including the Smithsonian Institution, recently selected Pinecrest Gardens for his next art installation and needs community volunteers to assist with various roles and responsibilities including leaf stripping, construction and maintenance from November 2-20.

With South Florida’s Cultural Arts Park to serve as his botanical stage and inspiration, Dougherty will begin building his immense environmental sculpture by weaving, twisting and turning tree saplings into large-scale whimsical, whirling shapes, with help from staff and volunteers, starting November 2. This project is funded in part by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and presenting sponsor TotalBank. It is scheduled to debut to the public in time for the 2017 Art Miami and Art Basel season, and has a life-expectancy of up to two years at Pinecrest Gardens.

Volunteers are needed to help prepare branches and saplings, weave branches, move scaffolding, keep the construction site tidy, explain the project to garden visitors and help maintain the structure over time. Volunteers must be 16-years of age or older and must commit to a minimum of four hours (one shift), 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. or 1:00-5:00 p.m., Nov. 2-20.

For additional details and registration, please call Pinecrest Gardens at 305-669-6990, Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or email your name, phone number, preferred dates and shift (morning or afternoon) to Pinecrest Gardens is located at 11000 SW Red Road.
