The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is located downtown near the Walker Art Center. I discovered it when I was visiting St Paul. Looking through the “things to go in the area” magazine in the hotel, I saw a picture of Spoonbridge and Cherry. I had to see it in person. In less than 45 minutes I was in Minneapolis.
Here is my other favorite sculpture from the garden. It consisted of 4 walls that were both transparent and reflective. I tried to take a photo to show that I could see through the glass wall to the other side and also see my reflection. The experience differed at each of the 4 walls based on the angle of the sun. The effect was fascinating.

The tress in the background are on the other side of the wall.

|This side of the wall (exactly opposite of the 1st photo)|
is entirely reflective based on the sun.
The garden also includes a conservatory that houses a large, glass sculpture of a fish. The flowers that were blooming made the conservatory smell amazing!
I want to go back to Minneapolis one day to visit the Walker Art Center, which houses contemporary art. What are some of your favorite museums?
