    Walker Art Center and Minneapolis Sculpture Garden
    The Walker Art Center is one of the nation's primary resources for contemporary art. Focusing on the visual, performing, and media arts, the Walker takes a multidisciplinary approach to the creation, presentation, interpretation, collection, and preservation of the arts. It is known for its major exhibitions of 20th-century art, for its presentation of vanguard music, dance, theater, film, and video, and for its innovative education programs. Many of the performers are invited to participate in artist-in-residence activities and are frequently commissioned to create works that premiere in Minneapolis. The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, a project of the Walker and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, is adjacent to the museum. The Walker's permanent collection of more than 8,000 works represents important artistic currents of the 20th century, in a range of styles from figurative to abstract.

    Visit the Sculpture Gardens near the Walker Art Center, take in a show at the Guthrie Theater
    The Sculpture Gardens provide a peaceful setting containing unique and interesting sculptures, adjacent to Loring Park and right next to the dynamic atmosphere of downtown Minneapolis. The Guthrie Theater, currently located with the Walker Art Center, is nationally-reknowned for its productions.
