The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden has been under construction since the Walker Art Center announced a $75 million renovation last spring. Since then, there has been some shuffling of pieces, with Mia, Weisman Art Center, and Gold Medal Park hosting some artworks. 

The updates to the green space will allow for more pieces, as the museum has announced the addition of 16 sculptures. Perhaps the most intriguing additions is a 15.5-foot blue rooster, Hahn/Cock by Katharina Fritsch. Other works some may already be familiar include Robert Indiana's Love, Sol LeWitt's Arcs..., and Eva Rothschild's Empire.

The 16 pieces coming to the park also includes six newly commissioned artworks by talents from around the world: Nairy Baghramian (Iran), Frank Big Bear (U.S.), Theaster Gates (U.S.), Mark Manders (The Netherlands), Philippe Parreno (France), and Aaron Spangler (U.S.).

The new Walker Art Center campus, which also entails road construction and a lobby overhaul, is set to debut in June of 2017.

Check out some of the pieces traveling to the Twin Cities below, as well as the planned layout of the new space.
