‘Catch the Ball’ will be a mobile sculpture garden in Minneapolis
Catch the ball!
The world’s most popular soccer-themed mobile sculpture project is about to begin in Minneapolis.
The ball will be installed at a local park in the city’s downtown core and will be used as a mobile home park.
Museum of Art director of communications Chris Daugherty said the ball was conceived in partnership with a group of people from the Minneapolis Museum of Art.
“We have been talking to people and doing a lot of work to make sure that the ball is in the right place, in the appropriate place and in the proper place to be in the museum,” he said.
The ball will not be used to play ball games but instead will be moved to a location on the grounds of the museum and will also be used for public events such as concerts and sports.
Daugherty added the ball will have the capacity to be used up to 60 times.

It will also allow the public to watch people in the field.
A statue of a horse has been designed and painted by artist and sculptor Nick Giesler.
It is a tribute to the people who work at the museum who are responsible for the installation.
According to the Minneapolis Arts Council, the Ball is scheduled to be unveiled on February 26.
