The Walker Art Center is taking every precaution for the safety and care of all visitors, staff, and artists. To proactively protect the entire community, the museum will remain temporarily closed. This program has been affected by the closure. We hope to resume our activities and welcome you back soon. Learn more.
The Sensory Friendly Sunday events previously scheduled for April 12 and May 10 have been canceled.
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 March, join local artist Akiko Ostlund in the Art Lab to create temporary abstract designs with colored salt. Then visit the galleries to learn about art in the exhibition Five Ways In: Themes from the Collection.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
