Arts Around MN: Outdoor art and an indoor send off for blue sky


This weekend take the time to enjoy art in the sun with Wayzata’s annual Art in the Garden.


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.
