At Custer Meadow in Pease Park in Austin is a new piece of artwork, a series of sculptures called Stickwork. Artist Patrick Dougherty created the structures using branches and saplings from local trees, tying them together and making them into the shapes you see in these pictures.

The exhibition is open in Pease Park. If you take Rainbow Bend and turn left on Kingsbury Street, you can’t miss it. There’s plenty of parking on the street.

Another cool thing about Stickwork is that it has no set end date. This exhibit will not be taken down or dismantled. It will be allowed to deteriorate in the elements over the course of years.
