  2. As a resident of Minneapolis and a member of the Walker, I can positively attest that the Walker enhances quality of life. Even little kids noticed last week that the ‘cherry’ was missing from the Spoon and Cherry Sculpture as it got cleaned. Iconic.

  3. I love the Walker Art Center. I’m a Minnesotan living in NYC and miss spending time at the Walker!

Walker Art Center

Through hundreds of groundbreaking exhibitions, publications and presentations by designers worldwide, the Walker Art Center presents the value of design to the general public. Its in-house design studio—widely regarded as a leader in contemporary cultural branding—is the recipient of more than 100 awards and operates one of the longest running fellowship programs in the U.S. The Walker actively commissions cutting-edge designs to create new buildings, landscapes, fonts and interactive technologies from leading and emerging designers. The museum’s commitment to design is reflected in the importance it has been accorded within the institution since its inception as a multidisciplinary art center in 1940: a central voice in strategic planning, an essential component of its multidisciplinary programming and a vital force in shaping its identity.
