French conceptualist Daniel Buren is always full of surprises—including finding uses for his artwork. He’s transcribed the French words for sail (voile) and canvas (toile) into striped fabric sails used during sailboat races in cities throughout the world. We’ll get to watch them on a lake, then up close at an installation in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. This is his latest city-specific piece, and it’s a perfect one for local summer sailing and art fanatics. See the sails in action during regatta day at Bde Maka Ska (3010 E. Calhoun Pkwy., Minneapolis) on Saturday, June 23. Three days later, sails from the winning boats go up in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
