Wind chime installation returns to Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
Heading to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden? Listen closely and look up.
- The beloved "Wind Chime (after 'Dream')" installation has returned to the garden's linden tree.
Background: The installation — created by French artist Pierre Huyghe and introduced to the garden in 2009 — is made up of 288 individual tubes, totaling 47 wind chimes.
- They symbolize the 47 measures of the five-minute piano melody "Dream" by John Cage.
- The display is weather-dependent and normally up from May to October, but was delayed mid-July this year because of the pandemic.
What we're hearing: In the right breeze, the installation is a lovely, melodic hum. With harsh winds, it can get a little chaotic.
