EXHIBITIONS: NOW ON VIEW
Designs for Different Futures
Discover a range of thought-provoking and brain-tickling projects by designers who are envisioning futures big and small, practical and whimsical, critical and sometimes downright utopian. This new exhibition asks us to imagine futures different than what we might expect, while painting a fascinating portrait of the present.
An Art of Changes: Jasper Johns Prints, 1960–2018

The exhibition features some 90 works in intaglio, lithography, woodcut, linoleum cut, screenprinting, and lead relief.

Shadows at the Crossroads
Honoring important Minnesotans of color, this work by Twin Cities artists Ta-coumba T. Aiken, Rosemary Soyini Vinelle Guyton, and Seitu Jones embeds the shadows of figures, including Harriet Robinson Scott, Maḣpiya Wic̣aṡṭa, and Kirk Washington, Jr., into the Garden’s footpaths.
Black Vessel for a Saint
Conceived as a secular sacred sanctuary, Theaster Gates’s sculpture consists of a black brick tempietto that’s home to a statue of Saint Laurence, salvaged from a church in the artist’s South Side Chicago neighborhood.
The ongoing maintenance of sculptures in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is supported entirely by donations to the Garden Fund. Your gift also supports the development of educational programming in and around the Garden.
