With 11 galleries of modern and contemporary art, the Walker Cinema, and McGuire Theater, the Walker is an essential experience for the culturally curious. Dine at the Gather Café, and find artful gifts at the Walker Shop. Stroll the 11 acres of the adjacent Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, featuring the iconic Spoonbridge and Cherry sculpture and fountain, open daily from 6 AM to midnight.
May of 2018 brings the launch of Sensory Friendly Sunday (SFS), a monthly, free offering for individuals with sensory sensitivities and Autism Spectrum Disorders. SFS will be held on first or second Sunday of the month from 8am–11am, before the galleries open to the public. SFS will offer visitors the opportunity to make art together, explore the galleries, watch a short film, or relax in a different setting.
This program aims to improve the Walker’s capacity to meet the needs of children, teenagers, and adults with sensory sensitivities, and their families, through this monthly, free, educational program.
