Adopt-a-River Found Objects Sculpture Locations

Between 1999 and 2014, the Adopt-a-River program commissioned an artist to create an outdoor sculpture made entirely of found objects (aka "trash"), to be displayed at the Minnesota State Fair near the DNR building. Seven of these 21 sculptures are on long-term display after their time at the Fair. This map shows where you can visit these found object sculptures.
