My high school tennis assignment in Eagan was cancelled this afternoon due to the weather, so I wandered around the Caponi Art Park on Diffley Road, something I've been meaning to do since a home and garden subject mentioned it to me a couple of years ago. It's charming and just a little weird, in a good way.
The park was the home and studio of the sculptor Anthony Caponi, who was the chairman of the art department at Macalester College for most of the 42 years he taught there.
Opened to the public in 1987, the 60 acre site has miles of trails in addition to the art in the sculpture park. It’s open at 9 a.m. Tues - Sun from May through October. For more information, visit caponiartpark.org
