Aerial Images Show Progress of U.S. Bank Stadium

Over the last 12 months, significant progress has been made on the construction of U.S. Bank Stadium. In that time, monthly aerial images of the site have been captured to give a unique perspective of the amount of work being completed. At this time last year, the west side of the stadium had not been enclosed and steel work was in the beginning stages. Fast forward to now – a year from when the Vikings will open the regular season at U.S. Bank Stadium – the structural steel has been topped out and stadium construction is nearly 75% complete.

Announcement Coming on Local Artists Selected for U.S. Bank Stadium Work

Earlier this year, the Vikings partnered with Sports and the Arts to source and acquire local artwork for U.S. Bank Stadium. In the coming weeks, dozens of local artists who will be commissioned by the Vikings for the new stadium will be announced and they will begin their artwork. The main goals for this project are to collaborate with Minnesota artists  to create a one-of-a-kind, museum-quality artwork that will showcase Vikings history, Minnesota sports history and other regional history throughout the entire stadium.
