Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
The Walker Art Center was the first public art gallery in the upper Midwest when it was established in 1927. Today, housed in a larger center that opened in 2005, it's a world-class destination for viewing contemporary art and media. Next to the center is the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, one of the largest urban sculpture parks in the country. Visitors love the iconic Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen Spoonbridge and Cherry (pictured at left; 612/375-7600; walkerart.org).
