The Walker Art Center-A Minneapolis Jaunt

Walker Art Center, Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

Yesterday, my daughters and I headed to Minneapolis for a quick tour of the Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

The image of the Spoonbridge and Cherry by Claes Oldenburg has become an unofficial symbol for Minneapolis since it’s installation in 1988.

Most of the Walker Center was closed for reconstruction, leaving just a few special exhibits open.

Even, their construction signs are creative!

It was a fabulous day to browse the sculptures outside.

The next time you travel to Minneapolis, why not try an afternoon at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.  If you like Modern Art, try the Walker Art Center--just make sure it’s open for business!
