This July and August, join us at Sensory Friendly Sunday for a unique participatory sensory workshop presented by School of Fish.
You and your loved ones can play along in an interactive ambient sound experience. Small groups will learn together how sound acts in an improvised context and enjoy the free coalescence of form, much like the natural magic of fish swimming together and apart in water.
School of Fish is the work of Michael Legan, a composer and sound artist based in St. Paul, Minnesota.
Sensory Friendly Sunday is a monthly event designed for kids, teens, and adults with sensory processing differences, autism spectrum disorder, or developmental disabilities. The galleries will be closed to the general public, allowing visitors to enjoy the museum in a calm environment with accommodations such as quiet spaces, noise-canceling headphones, and sunglasses available. Experience the Walker’s exhibitions, participate in a new art-making activity, or watch a short film.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
