July tours at the Walker Art Center offer a chance to take part in the new Sound Bites gallery talks, held on select Thursday evenings at 6:30 and 7 pm. Sound Bites illuminate an artist or work of art from the Walker’s world-class collection or one of its stellar special exhibitions. Public tours in July are now offered Thursday–Sunday at 2 pm, and tours in July are offered for Trisha Brown: So That the Audience Does Not Know Whether I Have Stopped Dancing (through July 20), providing an in-depth look at the visual arts practice of an artist recognized primarily for her work in dance and opera; Richard Prince: Spiritual America (through September 14), a critical overview of the celebrated American artist’s work, organized by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Worlds Away: New Suburban Landscapes, featuring the work of 34 artists and architects who explore a variety of suburban conditions that challenge preconceived ideas and expectations about the contemporary American suburb; and of ongoing collection exhibitions, the Walker building, and the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
Gallery admission is $10 adults; $8 seniors (65+), $6 students/teens (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.
