About the Museum
The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is an 11 acre park in Minneapolis located near the Walker Art Center who operates it in coordination with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. It is one of the largest urban sculpture gardens in the country, with 40 permanent art installations and several other temporary pieces that are moved in and out periodically. Originally opened in 1988, it was reconstructed in 2017 to unify the park with the Walker Art Center. The centerpiece of the garden is the Spoonbridge and Cherry (1985–1988) fountain designed by husband and wife Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.
