Spoonbridge and Cherry is a sculptural fountain designed by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. It is funded by a donation of US$500,000 from art collector Frederick R. Weisman and is permanently located in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. This work was completed and installed for the opening of the sculpture garden in 1988. It includes a large cherry placed on a large spoon and partially across a small pond.
Spoonbridge and Cherry were completely repainted in 1995. In 2012, the word "Kony" was sprayed onto the spoon of the sculpture. This may be part of the Invisible Children's Cover the Night event, requiring scrubbing and restoration of the sculpture. Walker staff were able to do this within 48 hours.
Spoonbridge and Cherry measures 30 x 52 x 13 feet (9 m × 15.7 m × 4.1 m) across a small pond built in the shape of linden seeds, reminiscent of the linden trees in the surrounding park.  The banks of the pond are covered with irises and reed polyurethane. The sculpture is made of stainless steel and aluminum, and is coated with enamel. The cherry part of the work weighs 1,199 lbs (544 kg), and the spoon part weighs 5,800 lbs (2,630 kg).
The sculpture sprays filtered water from the tips and bases of the cherry stems, the latter being designed to make the cherries sparkle in the light.
