The following pieces are part of the permanent collection
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.
“Like A Tree, Rooted in the Earth”
Richards D. Poey, Eden Prairie, MN
Poey, a resident of Eden Prairie, is known for both bronze and stone sculptures. This bronze sculpture depicts the “Tree Pose,” a balancing pose in yoga which focuses on concentration, clarity of thought, awareness and balance of mind and body. The sculpture portrays a human figure as growing upward like a tree from the planet earth, its arms like branches reaching for the sun. Donated in 2011 by Hopkins Historical Society.
Michael F. Pilla, St. Paul, MN
This piece of stained glass can be found in the Hopkins Library.
“The Wellness Monument”
Thomas Calhoun, Taylor Falls, MN
