Nimbus is Home!

December 8, 2018 — On a chilly Saturday morning with a mist of hoarfrost in the air, Nimbus was ceremoniously lofted over Nicollet and permanently sited in the forecourt of Minneapolis Central Library. The colossal sculpture by Tristan Al-Haddad, three-years in the works, completes the collection of public art on Nicollet.

For the past month, the public watched as the sculpture, trucked from Al-Haddad’s studio in Atlanta, Georgia in seven parts, was assembled in a parking lot across the street. Then a crowd gathered with Al-Haddad’s team to watch the big moment when Rocket Crane settled it carefully into place.
