Like the swallows returning to Capistrano, colorful couture returns to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden each April.
Once again, brides and Prom dates descend upon the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden for that highly treasured photograph in front of Spoonbridge and Cherry, the monumental sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen.
Near sunset on Saturday, April 22, no less thanfour limosines were parked along Vineland Place while tuxedoed gentlemen escorted a rich array of young ladies in sumptuously-colored gowns along the Garden’s main Bronze Allee. From high atop the 8th floor terraces of the Walker Art Center, guests attending the opening reception for the exhibition Sharon Lockhart: Pine Flat enjoyed the additional entertainment of these formally clad folks weaving in and out of the many garden galleries.
Will you catch a blooming bride or primrose prom queen on your next visit?
