MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — When one door closes, another opens, so they say. Wit that in mind, the Walker Art Center is offering free gallery admission for the next few weeks while they complete a construction project.
The Walker is in the midst of replacing bricks on the facade of the Barnes building and are continuing the installation of Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties, which means several galleries will be closed over the next month.
In return, the Walker is waiving the price of admission. Exhibitions running during this free admission period include Abraham Cruzvillegas: The Autoconstrucción Suites, Painter Painter and the newly opened Fritz Haeg: At Home in the City.
Free gallery admission is offered at the Walker from Tuesday (Aug. 13) to Sept. 21. Free admission is only offered for the galleries — the mini golf, films and performing arts events are not effected.
Regular gallery admission prices will be reinstated on Sept. 22 when Claes Oldenburg: The Sixties opens.
