Stickwork, a site-specific art installation by nationally recognized artist Patrick Dougherty, is a large-scale sculpture constructed from natural materials Denver Botanic Gardens’ Chatfield Farms, 8500 W. Deer Creek Canyon Road, Littleton (off Wadsworth Boulevard at the south end of Chatfield State Park). Dougherty weaves flexible saplings into architectural forms, which remain on view until they fall apart. (Some have lasted for years.) Some saplings are chokecherry, gathered at Chatfield. Also — through Oct. 28, the Corn Maze. Always there — a historic farm, miles of trails illustrating different ecosystems, native plants and more … Coming up soon will be a Santa’s Village display with lights and fun. 720-865-3500, botanicgardens.org.
