After reading this New York Times piece about people taking up their lunch hours (and beyond) by watching online video, it seemed to me life at the Walker would could make for a natural mid-day distraction for the masses. So today we launch Eavesdrop — each Webisode captures moments of time in a single day at the Walker, from the glitz of an exhibition’s opening night to the behind-the-scenes work of our framing and installation technicians to whatever schemes the Walker’s Teen Arts Council are hatching.
This debut, Eavesdrop 01.17.08, begins with the overflow Target Free Thursday Night crowd (it was the final cost-free opportunity to catch Frida Kahlo) and moves on to the after-show party from The TEAM’s Particularly in the Heartland (part of Out There 20). In short order, Eavesdrop will become a daily feature, online by 11 am every Monday through Friday. Let me know your thoughts.
