EXHIBITIONS: NOW ON VIEW
An Art of Changes: Jasper Johns Prints, 1960–2018
An Art of Changes surveys six decades of Johns’s practice in printmaking, highlighting his experiments with familiar, abstract, and personal imagery that play with memory and visual perception in endlessly original ways. The exhibition features some 90 works in intaglio, lithography, woodcut, linoleum cut, screenprinting, and lead relief.
The Expressionist Figure: The Miriam and Erwin Kelen Collection of Drawings
Celebrating the remarkable collection of drawings recently donated to the Walker by longtime patrons Miriam and Erwin Kelen, this exhibition explores the expressive potential of the human body. Richly varied in theme and style, the works on paper span more than a century of artistic experimentation.
Five Ways In: Themes from the Collection
With more than 100 works—painting, sculpture, drawing, photography, and video installations—the exhibition Five Ways In: Themes from the Collection invites us to become reacquainted with favorites from the collection and discover new pieces by artists who are reinventing genres we thought we knew.

Shadows at the Crossroads
Honoring important Minnesotans of color, this work by Twin Cities artists Ta-coumba T. Aiken, Rosemary Soyini Vinelle Guyton, and Seitu Jones embeds the shadows of figures, including Harriet Robinson Scott, Maḣpiya Wic̣aṡṭa, and Kirk Washington, Jr., into the Garden’s footpaths.
Black Vessel for a Saint
Conceived as a secular sacred sanctuary, Theaster Gates’s sculpture consists of a black brick tempietto that’s home to a statue of Saint Laurence, salvaged from a church in the artist’s South Side Chicago neighborhood.
The ongoing maintenance of sculptures in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is supported entirely by donations to the Garden Fund. Your gift also supports the development of educational programming in and around the Garden.
