Art in the Garden: “The Art In The Garden annual show is held in a magical private water garden on the private land of a Wayzata couple. Originally installed by a commercial contractor who specialized in waterscapes, the beautiful, pastoral setting is just a few feet from a local road, but seem like it’s a remote, enchanted garden far, far away.”

“Franconia’s second annual 3-D Music series invites musical artists to the Franconia Sculpture Park to perform bi-monthly on Saturdays from July until October. The musicians perform in the Franconia Earthen Amphitheater, which was completed in July of 2009. The 3-D Concert series exposes our community to a wide range of musical artists over the course of four months, while featuring tours and the continuous exhibition of world-class sculpture on view at Franconia. Event organizer Woody McBride has coordinated the diverse mix of musical artists for the 8 performances that comprise the 3-D Concert series. This music series encompasses a wide range of musical genres to create a diverse family friendly art and music cultural event for our entire community. The 3-D Concert series significantly expands the park’s existing cultural event programming with a summer-long series of musical performances.”

Hastings 3000 and Phantom Tails kick off the music series this Saturday.
