Corporate Partners play a crucial role in supporting the ambitious artistic and educational programming the Walker presents each year. Premier Partners and Corporate Members help undergird all that the Walker does to engage our community and out-of-town visitors with today’s most compelling art and artists from around the world. Corporate Sponsors underwrite specific programs, such as exhibitions, performing arts, moving image, and education and public programs. The Walker is pleased to provide valuable recognition, marketing, promotional, hospitality, and/or employee benefits in return for the generous support it receives from Corporate Partners.
