After our visit to the the Walker Art Center in downtown Minneapolis, my son Peter and I walked across the street to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
Claes Oldenburg’s “Spoonbridge and Cherry” (1985-1988) was a kick, but I gravitated toward Jenny Holzer’s “Selections From the Living Series” (1989). Holzer’s twenty-eight white granite benches look innocuous enough — until you get closer. Each bench bears a pithy — tongue in cheek? — aphorism.
I took pictures of my favorites.
