Franconia Sculpture Park, MN – 26 AUG 2012

This 20-acre park provides residence and work space to emerging and established artists.
  

Located in Franconia, Minnesota (out in the boonies) it is not a place you would happen upon by accident.
  

They have many interesting programs and events including a 3D Concert Series.
   

With a rotating collection of over 95 contemporary sculptures, it is free and open to the public 365 days, from dawn to dusk.
   

It was hot and late in the day so I only saw the first few acres. 
   

I was not overly impressed with what I saw but the website had some interesting items on display: http://www.franconia.org 
   

They even have two 4-seater golf carts (upon request) for those needing assistance in touring the exhibition.
    
   
  
If I lived in the area, it would be a place to visit over and over again. 
   
    
The closest town, Lindstrom, is known as America's Little Sweden and had a water tower to prove it:
