With the Walker Sculpture Garden under construction for renovation, there’s never been a better time to stop by Franconia Sculpture Park in Shafer, Minnesota. Franconia’s 20th anniversary offers the perfect occasion to visit. The park will host a full day of live music, family art-making, tours of new sculptures, puppetry, and face-painting. Special guests include Franconia’s youth rock group, all-girl teen punk champions Bruise Violet, indie favorites Communist Daughter, and R&B/soul group Sonny Knight & the Lakers. St. Croix Falls Festival Theatre, Open Eye Figure Theatre, and the folks from the Water Bar will also be in attendance. Bring your creative spirit for lots of different art activities, plus an empty stomach, as there will be plenty of food vendors.
