Help the Garden Thrive!

The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is one of the most visited and influential sculpture parks in the country. A unique public-private partnership between the Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation board, the Garden draws approximately half a million people annually. Visitors from the Twin Cities and around the globe come to the Garden to enjoy this world-class urban art sanctuary 365 days a year.   

Especially in the last 18 months when many of us have sought outdoor opportunities, the Garden has become a vital resource in connecting art to the everyday lived experiences of visitors. It’s a space where families, friends, and tourists can relax, be inspired, and enjoy art, nature, and each other.  Students from all over the state of Minnesota engage in arts-integrated learning and deepen their connection to the world around them. 

The Walker continues to partner with artists to create new works in the Garden. Most recently, Okciyapi by Angela Two Stars, a member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate was installed this past fall. This newest addition is simultaneously a sculpture, a gathering space, and a participatory piece that provides a site for visitors to engage with Dakota language. 

The art is the heart of the Garden and like anything well loved, it requires regular care and attention. Minnesota’s fluctuating weather and harsh winters take their toll on these outdoor sculptures. Conservation of the more than 60 artworks is sustained entirely by the Garden Fund. We need your help to maintain these works so they can be enjoyed for years to come! With your support, we can make sure that the Garden is ready for those sunny days ahead. 

The vitality of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is made possible through the generosity of supporters like you. Join me in preserving these cherished works of art by making a fully tax-deductible gift to the Garden Fund today.  

Thank you for ensuring that this beloved space cared for and energized for years to come!
