Artist-Designed Mini Golf: Opening Night and Artists’ Reception

Part of Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf

Help us celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden with the opening of Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf. Meet the artists, enjoy food and drinks from the new Dog House, and enjoy a round of mini-golf on this year’s two eight-hole courses.

The Course

Garden gnomes masquerading as foosball strikers, a scale model of a French chateau, mazes, gopher holes, and contours mapped from the course at the legendary Augusta National Golf Club are just a few ingredients going into the 2013 edition of the artist-designed course. And purists, worry not: at least one hole includes a kitschy, oversize watering can.

This year’s winning proposals were selected from a group that included architects, artists, engineers, machinists, mini-golf aficionados, and a loose creative collective known as Makesh!t who responded to an open call this winter.
