According to Mary Abbe (Minneapolis Star-Tribune), the Walker Art Center has installed 16 works to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden — a donation worth $15 million.

The works will be installed following completion of the first substantial update to the 19-acre campus in more than a decade, with the Garden set to reopen to the public in June 2017. Some pieces will be on view sooner, when the Walker’s new entrance pavilion opens in November 2016.

The Walker Art Center will pay for the purchase and expenses related to installing the works, namely thanks to private funds. A sculpture by Robert Indiana — “Love” — will be amongst the works installed, as well as a gigantic ultramarine blue cock: Hahn/Cock (2010), by artist Katharina Fritsch.
