“a catalyst for the creative expression”

The Walker Art Center is a catalyst for the creative expression of artists and the active engagement of audiences. Focusing on the visual, performing, and media arts of our time, the Walker takes a global, multidisciplinary, and diverse approach to the creation, presentation, interpretation, collection, and preservation of art. Walker programs examine the questions that shape and inspire us as individuals, cultures, and communities. Internationally recognized as a leading arts venue, the Walker Art Center presents contemporary visual arts and design exhibitions; dance, theater, and music performances; and film screenings. The Walker hosts lectures, classes, and events for visitors of all ages with many of today’s leading figures from the worlds of art and culture. The building’s elegant brick tower, designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes, opened in 1971 and is complemented by a dynamic aluminum mesh and glass expansion by Pritzker Prize–winning Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, completed in 2005. Overall, the campus has 11 exhibition galleries, a cinema, the McGuire Theater, a series of indoor lounges and outdoor terraces, and a café, bar, and restaurant. The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, a joint project of the Walker and the Minneapolis Park & Recreation Board, is one of the crown jewels of the city’s park system. The 11-acre site, home to the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry, showcases more than 40 works from the Walker’s renowned collection.
