In its ten-year history, the park has impacted the culture and the infrastructure of the entire city. This walking tour will celebrate that history with an in-depth discussion of each sculpture, including the newest addition, "Pumpkin Large" by Yayoi Kusama. Just for fun and to spark a lively discussion, participants will use emojis to mark their personal responses to each of the sculptures. The timing of the tour will provide a chance to see the sculptures illuminated.
