Over a dozen contestants put their artistic skills to utter waste in our recent contest pondering the latest addition to the Minneapolis architectural landscape. Some were funny, some were smart, some appeared slapped-together on a lunch break, and all are featured below, including a slapped-together offering yours truly concocted. Click on the thumbnail to open a larger version of the artwork.
Congratulations to Nan Blomquist and Lisa Miller of St. Louis Park for their vision of the Walker addition as a high-tech lunchbox. Nan and Lisa have earned a dinner for two at the 20.21 Restaurant and Bar by Wolfgang Puck. Sherri Faye Caldow of Burnsville receives a spoonbridge and cherry snowglobe and four passes to the Walker for her Second Place "Bride of Benderstein" illustration, and Third Place honors and a pair of Walker passes go to Craig Lassig of Minneapolis for his "Walker Sock 'Em Robots."
