Art of Golf


In a great celebration of summer and the 25th anniversary of their sculpture garden, the Walker Art Center enlisted teams of artists, architects, designers and engineers to create two 8-hole mini golf courses on the grounds. Fifteen teams were chosen from sixty proposals, many of the resulting holes art-related or specifically referencing works in the garden. “Be a Sculpture,” allows other players to block the ball by standing in designated footprints, while “Holey Lighted” (shown) is a sculpture in itself, with a giant steel geodesic canopy with round cut-outs arc-ing over the hole. The games will go on through September 8.
