Did you know there are now approximately 300 pieces of public art (and counting) to visit in Minneapolis?
Nimbus, a sculpture by artist and architect Tristan Al-Hahhad and the last public art work commissioned for the new Nicollet, arrived in Minneapolis in eight sections in November. All-Haddad and his team of welders, fabricators and Rocket Crane have been working over the past month staging and assembling the work in the parking lot across the street from its final resting spot.
On December 8, 2018, this 18,000-pound sculpture was lifted by giant crane and moved over Nicollet to its final resting place in the front court of the Minneapolis Central Library, where it cantilevers over the outdoor theater-in-the-round seating area. When we stopped this weekend, they were still working on it.
I am anxious to see this weathering steel structure when its installation is finally completed, and am especially intrigued to see it at night, when it will cast a halo of light… how perfect for this season of darkness and light.
