Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at the Walker

We had some time before my plane left, so we had a hearty brunch and headed over to look at some outdoor sculpture.

Empire by Eva Rothschild

Where is this little duck hanging out?

Right under the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry by Claes Oldenburg & Coosje Van Bruggen.   I had seen pictures of this iconic piece, but in person, I was surprised to find that the cherry sprayed water, which was a delightful addition.

Hahn/Cock by Katharina Fritsch.  Love that blue!

Sara as Hephaestus by Matthew Monahan.  I really liked the texture of the metal. (In the sculpture, not in the Sara) We walked to the car passing by Loring Pond where I got this lovely picture.

And then it was to the airport, where I had to bid my hosts goodbye.  Thanks much to Shawn and Sara for being such excellent hosts.

  1. Your sculpture garden and park pictures are amazing!!! It was such a lovely close to your trip. Thank you again for coming.

  2. Oh man, a sculpture garden! I’m jealous. I’ll have to see if there are any around here. Your shot of Loring Pond is perfection.

    1. Sara and Shawn would be glad to hear of your appreciation of the Loring Pond shot, as they pointed out the perfect picture-taking spot to me. They have a blog. They know where all the good photo spots are.
