Sheridan Veteran’s Memorial added to Explore More

Posted by Doug Shidell, July 12th , 2016.

Just added the Veteran’s Memorial to Explore More Twin Cities at Sheridan Park along the Mississippi River in Northeast Minneapolis. Dedicated to the veterans of American wars from the Spanish American War to the present, the memorial uses the arm shield as it’s symbol for warriors through the ages.

Surrounding the main sculpture are a series of face images depicting the men who fought in each of the wars. This one represents the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in the nation’s history.

Convergence, created by Richfield Artist James Brenner in 2015 is located just east of the Mall of America in a roundabout at 28th Ave and Lindau Lane. The sculpture is 35 feet tall and surrounded by native plantings. It represents the people who interact and move through the South Loop District in Bloomington. Daylight flows through the ring in daylight and in the evening LEDs light the hoop. If you position yourself in the right spot, jets appear to pass through the sculpture.
