Sunday’s Site – Walker Art Center & Minneapolis Sculpture Garden


Last weekend was the summer solistice, and the Walker Art Center collaborated with 89.3 The Current to take advantage of the daylight with an outdoor concert. As you can see from the photo below, ‘Rock the Garden’ was a great success!

The people-less spot you see in the foreground is this summer’s Walker Artist-Designed Mini Golf course. If you want to go and play a round, it is open Wednesday-Sunday 10 to 8 through September 7th.


The celebration was billed as the biggest birthday party of the season, part of the ongoing celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. The garden is a wonderful creative and restful respite in the heart of the bustle of the city, a unique collaboration between the Walker and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. It holds a special place in our hearts, both as a place to wander and take family photos and also as the site of our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding. On ‘Rock the Garden’ night it was a place set apart from the concert crowds.


This coveted location close to downtown and Lake of the Isles is the site of some of the most elegant homes in Minneapolis, as well as numerous condos.
