After twenty five years and more than eight million visitors, the Sculpture Garden’s failing infrastructure needs to be reconstructed in a sustainable manner to serve visitors now and for generations to come. The project includes repair or replacement of deteriorated and inadequate infrastructure such as irrigation, drainage and stormwater systems, walkways, retaining walls, and other physical assets of the sculpture garden. The project will also result in increased physical accessibility and improved energy efficiency.
The MPRB has received up to $10 million in public funding to reconstruct the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. In May 2014, the Minnesota State Legislature appropriated $8.5 million in state bonding funds to the project and the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization has dedicated up to $1.5 million for innovative stormwater management systems in the project.
