WEDNESDAY PICK | A park pops up at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts


You shouldn’t need an excuse to pay at least one seasonal visit to the Minneapolis Insitute of Arts—did you remember that it’s free?—but for those who need an additional push, the MIA has transformed its central atrium into a “pop-up park”: a lush little oasis of flora and fauna (the fauna being you). It’s all fake, of course: this is art, not life. But in the grey days of February, sometimes an imitation of life is better than the real thing.
