Last year at this time, we received a gift membership to the Walker Art Center from my parents. The year previous, they had given us a membership to the Minnesota Children’s Museum. That was fun. Our then 3 year old loved it, and we loved seeing her love it. But the Walker membership had something for each of us. They have great kids’ programming that my little artist loves, and the exhibits we attended were an interesting mix of art & culture that engaged my husband and me (not exactly “in the know” when it comes to art).
Some of the highlights of our year made it onto the blog:
- Arty Pants – We made it to a few of these preschool oriented events in the year.
- Graphic Design – Fascinating look at the history of design.
- Art & Artpolice – The Frank Gaard exhibit surveyed the work of a local artist including his satirical zine.
- The ’80’s with New Eyes – Art and politics in the 1980’s.
We also attended a storytime and visited the Trading Tortoise in the Open Field. We all enjoyed the membership, and we will definitely be returning to the museum even though we aren’t members anymore.
