Self-Guided Tour: Greatest Hits: Commissions in the Sculpture Garden
Self-guided tours are thematic instructional materials for student groups experiencing the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden on a self-guided visit. All self-guided tours include a Garden map marked with the tour stop locations. Self-guided visits for student groups (10–100 people) can be scheduled using the Tour Request Form (walkerart.org/tourrequestform). You can view the materials with the ArtsConnectEd image viewer or download the PDF files to your computer. Use the Prev/Next buttons to move between the page previews and a link to the actual file.

About this Self-Guided Tour

Since the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden opened in 1988, 23 works of art have been commissioned specifically for the site. From fleeting performances boasting live horses and people in flight to sculptures that have become synonymous with the Twin Cities (think cherry on a spoon), much creative and conceptual energy has been put into fostering an outdoor space of contemplation and wonder. This self-guided tour explores a number of the Garden’s commissioned works.

Pre-Visit Planning

This handout is for the students. Make a copy for each so during the visit they'll have the background on artworks as well as a place for taking notes.
