"What would be a standout work in a gallery, is elevated even further living amongst the concrete and steel (and roots and seeds) of a downtown park. This piece reminds the viewer of the impermanence of things that grow (with its form) while also impressing the permanence of the concept of growth (with its medium.) The tendrils poking through the piece create opportunity for viewers, both young and old, to imagine what might emerge from this almost living form." C.J. Renner, Award Juror

The following pieces are part of the permanent collection
Kyle Fokken, Minneapolis, MN
Painted Steel, Copper
Fokken of Minneapolis reveals his love of antique toys in his mixed media work, but always with an idiosyncratic and modern take-his sculptures combine nostalgia with futuristic fantasy. The sculpture in Hopkins is from a series based on locomotive forms and also includes a wooden shoe, a reoccurring image in Fokken’s work that speaks to humble origins but to the idea of a mundane object that also possesses the power to sabotage. Donated in 2011 by Hopkins Business, Civic Association and Think Hopkins.
“Like A Tree, Rooted in the Earth”
Richards D. Poey, Eden Prairie, MN
Poey, a resident of Eden Prairie, is known for both bronze and stone sculptures. This bronze sculpture depicts the “Tree Pose,” a balancing pose in yoga which focuses on concentration, clarity of thought, awareness and balance of mind and body. The sculpture portrays a human figure as growing upward like a tree from the planet earth, its arms like branches reaching for the sun. Donated in 2011 by Hopkins Historical Society.
Michael F. Pilla, St. Paul, MN
This piece of stained glass can be found in the Hopkins Library.
“The Wellness Monument”
Thomas Calhoun, Taylor Falls, MN
Aluminum, cedar trim
