We Stand with Our Community

With the Twin Cities and people around the world, we grieve the murder of George Floyd and all victims of police brutality. We condemn racism, intersectional discrimination, fear-mongering, and acts of violence against all communities of color. Black lives matter.

The Walker Art Center has a role in the creative and cultural life of this community and, as such, must foster transparency, free speech, and criticality. In addition to demanding justice, we are committed to racial equity, internally and externally, and will continue to foreground the voices of Black artists and historically marginalized artists who light the way to a more just society.

MORE THAN WORDS

We have compiled a partial list of arts-based organizations that are supporting the Twin Cities community in this difficult time. We urge you to follow and donate if you can. If you’d like to support or work with the Walker in this space of community partners, please email us at education@walkerart.org.
