Last week, on our way out of Minneapolis, we swung by the Walker Art Center and took a quick walk around one of its most recent additions, “Walker on the Green: Artist-Designed Mini Golf.” Across the way from the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the outdoor course features a dozen or so miniature golf holes designed by artists – some revisiting classic mini golf cliches (like the larger-than-life Paul Bunyan hole), others giving the retro game an avant-garde spin (like an intimidating plastic bottle and rope gauntlet).  We liked the interactivity and playfulness of the ‘collection'; while kids and adult putt-putted their way around the art, they talked about which holes (pieces) they liked, which ones were tough, which ones were ‘neat' – a completely hands-on, and unique, exchange between the art piece and its spectator.
