As part of the Minnesota Vikings commitment to honor the Minneapolis-St. Paul community and the State of Minnesota, the team commissioned local artists to curate hundreds of works to be featured throughout U.S. Bank Stadium.

In total, 47 artists were selected from more than 1,100 submissions and ultimately contributed to 300-plus pieces of original artwork, 250 photographs, 3,500 square feet of hand-painted murals and over 12,000 square feet of wall graphics. The collection spans eight mediums and three themes: celebrating Minnesota, honoring Minnesota sports moments and saluting Vikings past and present.

The artists are outstanding examples of Minnesota’s robust and talented art community. We appreciate their partnership in creating this incredible collection that further emphasizes U.S. Bank Stadium is for the benefit and enjoyment of all Minnesotans.

Holly Grimsrud was commissioned to create art works for the Vikings stadium collection. Using a jigsaw, she cut “Youth Sports” figures from particle board and colored them with acrylic paint. Her figures hang in a corridor leading to upper level  suites on the GOLD SIDE of the stadium.

“Entitled ‘Potential’, adolescents are playing different sports. They are frozen in different states of potential success, disappointment, glory, and heartbreak. The cutouts are inspired by how sports unite races and youths with different upbringing, experiences and abilities beyond societal stereotypes and towards  a common goal. These athletes make up a patchwork of identities, which shape the future of the Minnesota cultural landscape.” – Holly Grimsrud
