Completed in the spring of 2009, Greg Ingraham and Teri Kwant designed a series of rest stops along the Midtown Greenway. The Greenway is a bike and pedestrian trail that was constructed on an old railway bed running from Lake Calhoun to the Mississippi River. The rest stops are located on the far east end of the Greenway from Minnehaha Ave to the Mississippi River. Public participants helped abstract themes and design criteria at public open house workshops held at the beginning of the project.
The theme of the art is personal journeys. Each of the five rest stops has its own subtheme: Nature, Culture/Subculture, Entertainment, the Past, and Work. The art consists of benches, bronze sculptures of shoes, and a guidepost sculpture.
The bench has a stone slab resting on a steel base; the bronze shoe sculptures sit on the bench or next to it. As visitors walk or bike along the Greenway they come to these rest stops; the signs will ask visitors questions about the journeys they have taken during their life times. Each site focuses on a distinctive theme related to journeys through the neighborhood, the city and life.
