Twenty years ago this week, the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden opened to the public. Since it opened in 1988, the garden, which was once an Army Reserve practice field, has attracted 6.5 million visitors. At 11 acres, it is one of the largest urban sculpture gardens in the country. Olga Viso, director of the Walker Art Center, and Minnesota Public Radio's Cathy Wurzer recently strolled through the grounds.
