Park Board, Walker planning changes to Cowles Conservatory

The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is wildly popular, most can agree. But it’s also quite expensive to operate.

In 2011, the garden and Cowles Conservatory combined to bring in $33,000 in revenue generated primarily through event fees. But the Park Board and the Walker Art Museum spent $246,000 to operate the garden and conservatory, losing about $211,000, even though 325,000 people visit each year.
