MINNEAPOLIS — When the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium opens next year, it will have an art collection that might be the envy of some museums.

U.S. Bank Stadium will feature about 500 artworks, including roughly 200 commissioned paintings, sculptures, digital and installation pieces, plus 300 photos.

The Vikings and the family of the team’s owner, Zygi Wilf, are paying for all of the art which is expected to cost “several million” according to Vikings executive Tanya Dreesen.
