Repainted cherry returns May 1 to Sculpture Garden


“Spoonbridge and Cherry” spent 10 weeks apart

LOWRY HILL — The cherry that topped Minneapolis’ most recognizable piece of public art will return freshly painted May 1 to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.

The cherry atop “Spoonbridge and Cherry,” the sculpture garden’s centerpiece, was removed February 23 and transported to Hugo, Minn., where it was given a fresh coat of paint. After nearly 10 weeks of restoration, the cherry will be reunited with the spoon sometime just before noon May 1, the Walker Art Center reported.
