It’s no secret that the tours we provide at the Walker are world-class, not only enchanting our visitors with bountiful knowledge about modern art, but also giving them a chance to giggle at the *amount of people that make out on the Spoonbridge & Cherry.
Thing is, when all you have to go on is hearsay, you don’t get the best picture of precisely how excellent our tour guides are at what they do. So I did some snooping around upon my supervisor’s suggestion, and guess what I found?
As it turns out, we have several giant ring binders of tour evaluations and letters that tell us what a great job our guides have done. Talk about a morale boost! It was a difficult process in which many tears were shed, but I eventually picked out the tokens of appreciation that really went an extra step to show us how they felt. From hand-made cards to explosively happy notes, I present to you the creme-de-la-creme.
Did I also mention that we won ourselves an award…
…as well as a gigantic banner that uses one of the best fonts I’ve ever seen?
It elates us to know we’ve made our visitors happy, especially when they make their feelings clear through such creative and striking ways. So the next time you think of turning in a tour evaluation, feel free to whip out the crayons and witty exclamations! After all, the pieces on display in our galleries aren’t the only kinds of art we cherish.
* Don’t worry – it’s all fine as long as you don’t scuff anything.
