So, uh… Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

1 Oct

Been biking a lot lately as the weather has been calm, cool and collected. The autumn days and evenings in Minnesota are some of the best for getting out and experiencing and checking out different things and places. Because not only do you get great colors as the trees turn from green to reds, browns and oranges, but you get to see it all in perfect weather. It’s not too hot or too cold and when there are no clouds in the sky, it just feels great to be outside. Frankly, if the weather in this state were to stay at this temperature all the time, I wouldn’t complain at all. It is still early in the fall season though, and as you can see, the trees are not all changed. They are just starting to turn, but when they do, it’s going to look great.

I also checked out the sculpture garden at the Walker Art Center yesterday. If ever you have seen a postcard of Minneapolis, it usually includes a shot of the Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture. Here you can see some of the other sculptures that are also on the grounds. And while this place has nothing on, say, any European sculpture garden, it is still someplace that everyone in the TC should check out at least one time. Also, don’t pictures just look more “arty” when taken in black and white? I think I might add some more artist-y type shots in the future because they seem to come out better as well on the ol’ phone.

Also, just for the record, in that last shot, the white building in front of the IDS is the one I work in. Yea! :\
