The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden was created nearly 30 years ago and was among the pioneers of its kind in the United States. The Garden is a partnership between the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Parks system. There are more than 40 sculptures in the park to enjoy seeking out, most iconic among them the Spoonbridge and Cherry - a favored symbol of the Twin Cities.
Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Reconstruction
The Minneapolis parks department and the Walker Art Center celebrated the grand reopening of the sculpture garden in June 2017. The project focused on the garden's infrastructure and future sustainability.
