Art Beat: Putt-putt in the sculpture garden


LOWRY HILL — It is no secret that the Walker Art Center’s artist-designed mini golf course prizes form and fun over function.

That’s the point, really, and we would expect nothing less when sport, such as it is, enters the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. A golf ball-launching gap in the artificial turf — the cause of an out-of-bounds penalty on one devilish hole — might have eliminated the course from consideration for mini golf’s pro-am tour, but we forgive the fabricators and play on.
