Stickman in front of the Conservatory

by Dawn Lipscomb, Children’s Garden Program Instructor, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden

Note:  “Stickman” is the Garden’s  ambassador for Patrick Dougherty’s Diamonds in the Rough stick sculpture at the Garden. Each week, the Children’s Garden staff moves Stickman to a new spot in the Garden — so our young visitors can search for him.  Dawn Lipscomb, our  Children’s Garden Program Instructor, often writes a poem with his whereabouts, as a clue. If you are coming to the Garden this weekend for October Oddities  make sure you take note — and search for our friend, Stickman.    In the poem, “Cameron” is Dawn’s son, and creator of Stickman. He’ll be here on Saturday displaying his work and  he’ll have other stick people for sale. 

Good afternoon, friends,

Stickman will stay right where he is,

He’s waiting for Cameron* to come.

He’s anxious to visit with other Stickman folk,

‘Cause Cameron is bringing along some.

So from 10 – 2 on Saturday,

The reunion is planned for then.

The Stickmen will all get together,

So all can make a new friend.

Look for them here on the Walkway,

Or under a tent, if it rains.

The Stickman magic will happen,

Stick faces, Stickmen, and Stick canes.

Cameron Lipscomb, creator of Stickman
