Michael Sweere's mosaics selected for Vikings Stadium
Not only will the new Minnesota Vikings U.S. Bank Stadium be outfitted with glass from Owatonna’s Viracon, but inside it will feature the artwork of Owatonna native Michael Sweere in a gallery to greet fans on their way to the game.
At the beginning of October, the Vikings and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA) announced the names of 34 Minnesota artists commissioned to create a collection of 500 works specific for the stadium. The website for the U.S. Bank Stadium says Sweere and the others were selected from more than 1,000 submissions to showcase the state’s sports teams and regional history.
