Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Art Festival

A Budding New Art Fair at the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden

In a city known for its lively arts scene, people were disappointed to hear that the beloved Uptown Art Fair would not happen this summer because of construction. A new event has been announced in Minneapolis. It aims to fill the creative void by offering a fresh artistic experience at an iconic location.

Homespun Events announced the first Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Art Fair on May 11-12, 2024. Right over Mothers Day Weekend.

Hosted at the Walker Art Center’s stunning Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, just a couple miles from where the Uptown Fair was held, this reinvented art fair promises to be a “vibrant celebration of creativity.”

“We are delighted to introduce the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Art Fair as a new tradition celebrating art, mothers, and community,” said Jill Hayes, director of Homespun Events. “This event offers a wonderful opportunity for families to come together and create lasting memories.”

An Artistic Cornucopia on Display

At the heart of any art fair are the artists themselves and their incredible works. The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Art Fair will feature a whopping 150 local and national artists showcasing their talents across a diverse range of mediums. Visitors can expect to discover an eclectic array of pieces, including sculptures, paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and more.

A Setting Ripe for Creativity and Inspiration

While the art itself will be the star, the location provides the perfect backdrop. The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, with its iconic art installations surrounded by lush greenery, offers an ideal setting to inspire visitors and highlight the connection between art and nature.

As Hayes notes, “Whether you’re bringing your mom to enjoy the beautiful artworks, searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift from our talented artists, or starting a new tradition, we invite everyone to join us for a weekend of creativity, inspiration, and celebration at the garden.”

Family-Friendly Amenities Abound

In addition to the outstanding artwork, the fair will feature amenities to enhance the full experience for guests of all ages. A beer garden and food trucks will be on-site. Best of all, admission is completely free, making this the perfect affordable outing for families.

Getting There Is a Breeze

The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden’s convenient location adjacent to the Walker Art Center in downtown Minneapolis provides plentiful transportation options. Paid underground parking in the Vineland Place ramp offers accessibility, while metered street parking and bike racks are available for those commuting by car or cycle. The garden is also serviced by several Metro Transit bus routes for a car-free journey.

As the flowers prepare to bloom and Mother’s Day approaches, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden Art Fair is shaping up to be a must-visit experience. Mark your calendars for May 11-12, 2024 and get ready to immerse yourself in an artistic oasis in the heart of the city.

Whether you’re an art aficionado, a Mother’s Day shopper, or simply someone seeking a delightful way to spend a spring weekend, this blossoming new fair is sure to delight.
