Walker Art Center
We’ve heard plenty about Oktoberfest, but this weekend is Walktoberfest. The Walker Art Center is turning 75, and they’re throwing a weekend-long birthday celebration.
I feel a little like Dom DeLuise’s Nero in Mel Brooks’ History of the World Part I. Only when he yelled, “More wine! More women!” I’m instead yelling, “More horror!” Yes, another October week with a number of scary screening options around town.
The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis is getting ready to celebrate its 75th birthday, and the public is invited. The Walker will have extended hours and free gallery admission this Thursday through Sunday.
Check out this week’s best bets from repertory and limited-run screenings!
Fall officially started on Monday, but the announcement that the British Arrows Awards are returning to the Walker Art Center is truly a sign that summer is in the rear-view mirror.
Bring your little art critics to these exhibits.
How did the old song go? “The cat came back the very next day.” After spending a year at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, the venerable Internet Cat Video Festival is returning to its initial digs on the hill just outside of the Walker Art Center.
Heroes in a half shell are indeed a bodaciously tempting offer, but if the rest of the month is looking pretty anemic for new movie offerings on a mass scale, maybe you’d like to scale down and sample one of these options?
The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis will put some iconic works from its collection on display as it celebrates its 75th anniversary. The Walker was founded as a public art center in 1940. The museum will kick off a series of exhibitions and programs starting with “Art at the Center: 75 Years of Walker Collections.”
This year’s art exhibitions in Minnesota are fresh, alive and relevant.
Like many places that endure long, difficult winters, Minnesota comes alive when the weather warms up. So many people from the Twin Cities — as Minneapolis and St. Paul are known — head to lakes in northern parts of the state that the city’s attractions truly open up to out-of-towners. And as in any urban area, some of the best are free.
This weekend is Rock the Garden at the Walker Art Center, where national and international artists are paired with the best local music. But for the VIP’s attending the show, it’s also about the food.
Minnesotans are superlative supporters of the arts, which may explain why we have such robust and prominent art destinations. Those who enjoy art will find that each of the following five spots is worth a visit.
There once was one. Now, there are two … days … of Rock the Garden! And now we know who’ll be performing at the Walker Art Center event. On Saturday, June 21, the weekend festival opens up with De La Soul, Matt and Kim, Best Coast, Jeremy Messersmith and Lizzo.
This isn’t just any weekend. A lot of you have an extra day because of the Memorial Day holiday. Jason Matheson has some ideas on how to fill up your weekend with fun.
