BRIEF ABOUT: A new outdoor sculptural work, “Untitled” by artist Jim Hodges was acquired in anticipation of the 25th anniversary of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden in 2013. “We are thrilled to bring this ambitious new work by Jim Hodges to the campus of the Walker and to downtown Minneapolis,” said Walker executive director Olga Viso. “Created by one of the most important American sculptors working today, this grouping of monolithic stones, which have been deftly transformed by the artist, seem to defy their massive weight and materiality, especially as the interplay of natural light and reflection activate their gleaming surfaces. Sited atop the hill of the Walker’s open green space, we hope that the boulders will, like the Spoonbridge and Cherry in the Sculpture Garden, become a beloved destination in our city for people to visit and experience from dawn to dusk and throughout the seasons.”

    Jim Hodges is the closest one to capture finishes like Beatrice Wood’s glowing glazes.
