Sculpture Park

Wacky Sculpture Park

It’s possible my first impression of this Wacky Sculpture Park has skewed my attitude.  They hold a well attended art event one weekend every year.  It’s always on Mother’s day weekend.  I used to be the Sunday Morning opening performing artist.  That was “my spot” because I was easy to set up.  Easy – anytime of the day – is good.  First thing in the morning is Best.  I also sang happy, uplifting songs.

Every year I zoomed all night from where ever my concert was.  Usually I was driving from Mankato, Minnesota.  Managing to arrive in time for a quick nap, shower and on-time arrival in the back lot of the Sculpture Park.  Park Services would set up a mobile stage across from a huge red sculpture.

Recently my pupster has taken me for a few walks.  The Sculpture Park invites well mannered canines to escort their people.  There are trails, sidewalks, open spaces and, wacky views.  My fluffy friend has given me a new attitude.

just thought you might want to know each piece has a story.  Here’s a fun one:
