The new Canterbury Park venue will include features such as a beer garden.

Kare11: Renderings for the new proposed amphitheater in Shakopee were recently released, showing what the massive venue would like after construction. The outdoor area in Canterbury Park would include a large beer garden and elevated seating.

The proposed renderings will go to a planning commission meeting on Aug. 4, with approval from the city council potentially coming as early as Aug. 16.

“[City council] still needs to complete a traffic management plan and also complete some new streets to connect to CH83,” Micheal Kerski, the director of Planning & Development for Shakopee, said in a statement. “But they could begin grading once the preliminary plan is approved.”

Canterbury Park is selling 40 acres of land to the Swervo Development Corporation to build the new 19,000-seat amphitheater. The area will be constructed along Canterbury Road and Unbridled Avenue.

“These new proposed development projects are significant steps in our long-term vision to continue to position Canterbury Park, Canterbury Commons and the City of Shakopee as a leading regional destination that offers a combination of residential, hospitality, commercial, retail and entertainment attractions and experiences,” said Randy Sampson, Chairman and CEO of Canterbury Park, earlier this year.

Walker Art Center: In Memory, Claes Oldenburg – Minneapolis, MN

We fondly remember artist Claes Oldenburg, who passed away at the age of 93. Oldenburg embraced what he called “the poetry of everywhere” by uncovering the mystery and power of commonplace objects through morphing their scale, shape, and texture.
By the early 1980s, he had begun to make monumental outdoor works with Coosje van Bruggen, his artistic and life partner. “Spoonbridge and Cherry,” now an iconic symbol for the Twin Cities, is one of their most celebrated collaborations. This fountain-sculpture was the first artwork commissioned for the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, which opened in 1988.

Gaia

Join us for Gaia, a touring installation by UK artist Luke Jerram, Now through – August 14th.

Gaia is an internally-lit sculpture of the Earth featuring imagery from NASA’s Visible Earth project. At 23 feet in diameter, it presents the Earth at a scale 1.8 million times smaller than its real size. The work includes a surround sound composition by BAFTA award-winning composer Dan Jones.

The installation evokes the overview effect, a shift in awareness experienced by some astronauts during space flight. It’s an experience of awe, interconnection, and renewed responsibility to care for the planet.
