Viking Art

 

Waite Park student artwork selected to be part of the permanent collection at U.S. Bank Stadium. 
 
Artists heard the call

U.S. Bank Stadium includes art by about 50 professionals.

“Each project has its own legs,” Speca-Ventura said. “We put out a call for artists in Minnesota, and more than 1,100 responded. In San Francisco, we got 300, so this is phenomenal. Usually in sports, you get comic or commercial art, but the variety and quality of the art here is amazing.”...

There’s also a painting by kids from Waite Park Community School in Minneapolis, plus pop-style portraits of 18 sports heroes (including Herb Brooks and Lindsey Vonn) by eighth-graders from Grand Rapids, Minn.
