Located on 60-acres of rolling wooded hills in Eagan, Minnesota, Caponi Art Park and Learning Center is a distinctive cultural center
offering free programs and educational experiences in an inviting, natural setting that seamlessly blends art and nature.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our Founder,
Anthony (Tony) Caponi on October 9th at the age of 94.

Tony bestowed on us his greatest work of art; the Caponi Art Park and Learning Center. Tony was a sculptor of granite, bronze and the land, an author and philosopher, but most of all Tony was a teacher.

We are grateful for the decades he spent bringing the Caponi Art Park to life and for all of the time he spent sharing his wisdom with those who worked with him, volunteered for the park and for the guests who have visited us. Tony believed that being in nature brings us more fully to life and he has left his legacy. The park will continue to nurture us, inspire us and to return us to ourselves.
Thank you, Tony. You will be dearly missed.

Caponi Art Park and Learning Center will continue to be led by Tony’s wife and co-founder Cheryl Caponi as Executive Director. There will be a celebration of Tony’s life in the spring at the park, please join us then.
