Local sticks star in Patrick Dougherty’s 300th “Stickwork” installation at Chatfield Farms

in Arts/Community

Since the early 1980s, artist Patrick Dougherty has delved into the relationships between structure and the natural world through his “Stickwork” installations. Each of his works, labyrinths of curved branches coalesced into cubes or castles, is unique to the space where it was built.

His 300th work is nearly ready for public enjoyment at the Denver Botanic Gardens’ Chatfield Farms, a curling network of hallways and tunnels meant to evoke the coils of a rattlesnake. Like many of his other projects, this installation embodies a lot of local influence: bendy willow branches collected from the region.

in Arts/Community

Kelly Montague, a street artist from Littleton, known across the world for her large-scale interactive angel wings, has landed a special project in Denver.

Kelsey Montague was a hardworking, struggling artist until superstar Taylor Swift found Kelsey’s first wings mural in New York City. Swift posed and posted the photo on Instagram and Kelsey’s art went viral.

“I feel like she dropped us on a wave, and we are riding that wave for as long, long and hard as we can,” Kelsey told CBS4’s Kathy Walsh.

Here is one of Kelly’s murals that you can see for yourself, in Littleton. It’s on the side of the former Spur Coffee building, located at 5624 S. Prince St, in downtown Littleton.
