September Free First Saturday: Sculpture Garden Shindig

Sept. 1
10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Art, Dance, Family Events, Museums, Pop

Fall is almost here, but there’s still time to enjoy the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Center’s Free First Saturdays. With art and music activities happening in the garden, plus additional free programming inside the museum, it’s well worth stopping by. Artist Roman Feldhahn will be teaching folks how to make wind sculptures in the Cowles Pavilion, where Daniel Buren’s Voile/Toile — Toile/Voile colorful sails are now on display. You can also learn to play the ukulele with Approachable Music, a group that will be in the garden with 30 ukuleles. A communal paint-by-number design that mixes art and technology, put together by Caroline Karanja and Native Youth Arts Collective, will be offered. Also, kids and adults alike will enjoy DJ Frank Lyon spinning vinyl records in the garden.
