Sculpture Garden hosts final night of Target Lights

Interactive exhibit closes after Thursday night

LOWRY HILL — The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden will host its last night of the Target Thursday Lights interactive installation Thursday.

The installation, commissioned by Target to celebrate the Sculpture Garden’s 25th year, features five mason jars filled with wire fibers attached to tiny lights resembling a jar of fireflies. As visitors approach the jars, motion sensors illuminate the lights inside the jar, and corresponding lights on top of the Target Corporate building respond with flashes of light and color.

The mason jars are located in the Sculpture Garden across from the Spoonbridge and Cherry statue, facing the Target building so visitors can see the light interaction. The installation was first introduced to the garden on July 11.

The Target Thursday Lights are free, and will be open for the last time 9 p.m.–11:30 p.m. Thursday. The display is a part of Target Free Thursday Nights, where gallery admission to the Walker Art Center is free 5 p.m.–9 p.m. Thursday nights in July.
