Free First Saturday: From the Garden with Love

Part of Artist-in-Residence: Fritz Haeg

It’s a harvest festival and a birthday party rolled into one! With the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden and the closure of the Foraging Circle project by artist-in-residence Fritz Haeg, we celebrate an end of the season with gifts, cupcakes, and stories about the garden.

Gallery admission is free for everyone on the first Saturday of each month from 10 am to 5 pm, with a variety of family activities scheduled from 10 am to 3 pm.

Unless otherwise noted, this month’s Free First Saturday events take place in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
