TWISTED | Patrick Dougherty Entwined at the Taft

Presented by Taft Museum of Art at Taft Museum of Art

The Taft Museum of Art is now home to a unique fantasy experience brought to life by world-renowned sculptor Patrick Dougherty.

Dougherty has taken six tons of willow tree saplings and twisted and turned them—with the amazing help of more than 150 community volunteers—into whimsical, whirling shapes. Patrick named the sculpture Far Flung.

Visitors are able to touch and walk through the large-scale sculpture. This enchanting creation will be on the front lawn of the Taft for about 18 months to 2 years.

Installation funded by: The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation


The sculpture is open during regular Museum hours: 

Wednesday–Friday: 11 a.m.–4 p.m.

Saturday–Sunday: 11 a.m.–5 p.m.

The Taft is closed Mondays and Tuesdays, New Year’s Day, Independence Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
