owatonna sculpture
A  large sculpture called "Regeneration" by artist Foster Willey Jr. is taking a prominent place in the hospital's courtyard, just outside the expanse of windows at the end of the main corridor. 

According to the artist, the sculpture celebrates the legacy of Allina Health by metaphorically representing its spiritual and healing aspirations.
