September tours at the Walker Art Center include opportunities for visitors to see the latest exhibitions: Ordinary Culture: Heikes/Helms/McMillian (on view through November 19), highlighting the work of three artists who examine culture by dissecting its systems of signs and values; Cameron Jamie (on view through October 22), featuring films, related drawings, and sculptures which capture such fringe rituals as haunted house decorating, teenage backyard wrestling, and competitive hot-dog eating; and Diane Arbus Revelations (closes September 10), featuring the most complete presentation of the artist’s work ever assembled. On Saturday, September 2, as part of the Walker’s Free First Saturday, patrons can take part in a Garden Crawl. Also offered in September are tours of the Walker’s ongoing exhibitions and recently expanded facility, tours of the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and Spotlight Gallery Talks led by Walker curators and tour guides highlighting selected artworks or artists in the galleries.
Gallery admission is $8 adults; $6 seniors (65+), $5 student/teen (with ID), and free to Walker members and children 12 and under. Admission is free with a ticket to a same-day Walker event, $4 with a ticket stub up to six days after an event. Gallery admission is free to all every Thursday evening from 5–9 pm and on the first Saturday of each month.
