The Anderson Center at Tower View is committed to ensuring that our communities are physically and mentally healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning February 10, 2021, its galleries and offices will be open to the public again. Face masks are required for those over 2 years of age. Physical distancing is also required. Ionization units have been installed in the HVAC systems throughout the main building to help kill viruses and reduce transmission opportunities.

The sculpture garden remains open daily. We encourage people to visit the sculpture garden while remaining 6 feet or more away from those who are not members of your immediate household. Avoid touching surfaces – it’s best to appreciate the art with your eyes only.

To follow the Anderson Center's work and find out about future events, please join the e-mail list, or follow the Anderson Center on Facebook or Instagram.


The Anderson Center is conveniently located just off Highway 61 on the northwestern edge of Red Wing, Minnesota. The Center has two entrances from 61 – the Cannon Bottom Road entrance leads to the West parking lot and the extensive sculpture garden. The Mounds View Drive Entrance leads to The Center's offices and main entrance.


We are glad to hear you are coming to visit our galleries, grounds and Sculpture Garden soon.  To make your visit more enjoyable for all ages, we suggest the following:

  1. Explore this website! Learn what is currently on display and where each venue within is located. 

  2. Our grounds include the historic residence (not open to the public); the historic water tower that is open when it is not under maintenance; our Main Building housing three gallery spaces, restrooms, and information; several buildings rented to artists and art businesses (not open to the public); and the outdoor Sculpture Garden.

  3. Handicapped accessibility is from the front parking area. There is a drop-off area to unload before driving to park in back (West Parking Lot) if the front parking area is full.

  4. There is no food available in the building. We have a cafeteria space that you are welcome to rest in.  During warm weather, we encourage bringing a picnic to use on the grounds as we have tables and benches scattered throughout.

  5. We do have a well-worn path leading to the Cannon River, beyond the brick pillars on the north side of the property. This path crosses the Cannon Valley Bike Trail and ends at the Cannon River.  It is a meandering path, but not a hard surface, so more like a hike than a walk.  Beautiful scenery and worth the time.

  6. Socialized dogs on leashes are permitted in the Sculpture Garden. Please pick up after your dog! Trash receptacles are located throughout the park.
