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-reduction headphones, and sunglasses available. Experience the Walker’s exhibitions, participate in a new art-making project, or watch a short film.
In February, join local art educator Lauren Bina in the Art Lab to create stamped prints inspired by the landscapes featured in the exhibition Five Ways In: Themes from the Collection. Then visit the galleries to learn about how contemporary artists use nature as inspiration in their work.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
