Public Arts in Hopkins

Kyle Fokken

“Shoo-Shoe Train”
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.
