    Sculpture Gardens at the Walker Art Museum
    Located near Loring Park, outside of the Walker Art Museum, the Sculpture Gardens is a great place to visit. A free exhibit, it is fun to just walk around and look at the different sculptures. One of the pieces, Spoonbridge and Cherry, has become a Minneapolis landmark. A giant spoon with a cherry at it's tip with a fountain flowing out of it's top, it has downtown Minneapolis as it's backdrop.

    Address: Outside of the Walker Art Museum

    Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
    The Walker Art Center is one of the nation's primary resources for contemporary art. Focusing on the visual, performing, and media arts, the Walker takes a multidisciplinary approach to the creation, presentation, interpretation, collection, and preservation of the arts. It is known for its major exhibitions of 20th-century art, for its presentation of vanguard music, dance, theater, film, and video, and for its innovative education programs. Many of the performers are invited to participate in artist-in-residence activities and are frequently commissioned to create works that premiere in Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, a project of the Walker and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, is adjacent to the museum. The Walker's permanent collection of more than 8,000 works represents important artistic currents of the 20th century, in a range of styles from figurative to abstract.

    Directions: The Walker Art Center is located on Vineland Place where Lyndale and Hennepin avenues merge. If heading west on I-94, take Exit 231B and go north on Lyndale/Hennepin. MTC bus lines 1, 4, 6, 12, and 28
