It might be said that the best crazy golf courses resemble mini sculpture gardens and thus that the best sculpture gardens have something of the crazy golf course about them. But these two cultural institutions have finally come together thanks to the Walker Art Center who are celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden with two eight-hole courses designed by “artists, architects, engineers, and putt-putt connoisseurs.”
Walker On The Green includes holes that pay homage to a bagatelle board, a gnome table football pitch, a geodesic dome housing mini replicas of the gallery itself and a great Willy Wonka-style play on perspective dreamt up by students from the University of Minnesota. It’s enough to make tiny windmills pale into insignificance.
Walker On The Green is open until September 8.
