This afternoon I was picking up by sister at St John’s University when I saw this incredible display called Art on the Prairie. It is called Stickwork and it is the work of artist Patrick Dougherty. For more of his creative work see http://www.stickwork.net
The structures are made entirely of sticks and branches. They are large enough to go inside and look out. It is also possible to walk in between the structures. The structures remind me of artwork from Dr, Seuss’s books, whimsical and a little off-kilter.
I wish that I had one of these structures in my yard. It would be a kid’s play land dream come true. They said that the structure will most likely last two years of being exposed to the elements. It is well worth the brief detour south off I-94 to see Art on the Prairie.

I’d love to go back and take my grandson with me for some pictures. I know he would love going in and out of the structures.

Definitely homes from Whoville. Those would be fun to play in!
