Join us in celebrating the opening of the newest addition to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden: Shadow Spirits at the Crossroads, a new commission by Twin Cities–based artists Seitu Jones and Ta-Coumba Aiken. A continuation of a project created for Nicollet Mall in 1992, Shadow Spirits consists of seven sculptures commemorating important figures in Minnesota history. Together, the artists traced the shadows of more than 40 local community members and then worked with the Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council to select the silhouettes that will appear in the Garden.
