If you have any knowledge of Minneapolis icons, you are probably familiar with the cherry on the spoon sculpture.
This beauty is located at the Walker Sculpture Garden – a must see destination for anyone living in or visiting Minneapolis! The outdoor garden is full of interesting sculptures, green lusciousness, and – best of all – it’s always FREE. This summer, there is an exciting addition to the general sculpture garden attractions: artist designed mini-golf.
If you like:

4. having fun in general
Then THIS is the event for you. Open 7-days a week until September 8, this installation has two 8-hole mini-golf courses, and each hole is designed by a different artist.
The various holes are a mix of traditional and untraditional mini-golfing. For example, if you use this gnome to help you get your ball in the hole, it doesn’t count towards your stroke count:
One hole plays with the idea of ‘mini’ golf and makes the putter walk into a giant golf ball, only to be immediately turned into a giant themselves, overlooking the Walker and sculpture garden
Another favorite required you to steer the ball through a series of holes to try to get the most points:
All of the holes were interesting to look at and included an additional artistic layer beyond what met the eye:
We only golfed one of the 8-hole courses and definitely plan to return before the end of the summer for the other course!
