Minneapolis Lake Monster is Just Art

| No Comments

Alongside children, boats and fish, art is one more thing Minnesotans can expect to find in the lake this summer.

For the past three years, Minneapolis artist Cameron Gainer has displayed a Loch Ness Monster look-alike in local lakes. The creature, named Minne, first appeared in Lake Harriet, and made her way to Lake of the Isles, Brownie Lake, and Powderhorn Lake, reported CBS Minnesota.

Gainer said Minne was initially presented in a number of art exhibitions, but found her home in Minnesota. Although her location is always a surprise, Minne's Twitter and Facebook profiles give fans hints as to where she might show up.

Minne can be expected to make her first appearance of the year in mid-May, and she won't move to another lake until after a few weeks.

According to the Huffington Post, Minne is a 13-feet-tall gimmick by the Minneapolis Parks Foundation to attract more people to the city's parks this summer.
