There's a sauna outside Mall of America. Which doesn't seem that weird, in the context of the roller coaster on the inside and the aquarium in the basement.
Little Box Sauna, a traveling art installation designed to promote individual and community health, is now open right in front of Radisson Blu and Mall of America. It is one of five Creative Placemaking projects taking place in the Bloomington area this year.
Little Box Sauna was designed and built by two local architects and University of Minnesota professors, Molly Reichert and Andrea Johnson. Anyone can strip right down in the mall parking lot (ok, there are rooms) and try it. Sign up for a 30 minute slot. Each guest will receive a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for their sauna experience.
The sauna will be open outside Radisson Blu Mall of America through Wednesday, Feb 25 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Then it heads across the street to IKEA from Feb. 28 to March 1. That is, if shopping at IKEA doesn't make you sweat enough.
