Skip to main content


At the heart of the Walker Art Center’s—and Walker Readers—mission is a call to “examine the questions that shape and inspire us as individuals, cultures, and communities.” Soundboard embraces this aim by tackling myriad questions—sometimes thorny, sometimes philosophical, always, we hope, worth considering—that surround the work of making, presenting, understanding, and living with art.
