Miniature golfing and art

The art museum offers a minture golf course next to the sculpture garden this summer. Each hole has been created by an artist. Some are easy but others are quite difficult. My... read more

I didn't like pop art the first time around and it hasn't grown on me, so having multiple levels of pieces from that era did not inspire me, and that was the focus when we were there. I found several pieces I loved elsewhere, pieces that made me want to stop, study, and enjoy, but in general we moved through... More

Loved the pop art exhibit, but this museum has all kinds of modern art. Big, open and airy, the space itself allows you to appreciate various installations from all angles.

As much as I enjoy art museums, the Walker just does not flip my switch. The center itself is clean, well laid-out. I just do not feel a connection with their collection. If there is a particular artist or special exhibit at the Walker, I will go. But it is not on my short-list of places to re-visit in the... More

Good Modern and Pop Art. Good to visit with your wife/gf! Takes about a hour to walk through the place. Not exactly what I was looking for. The Art was okay to look at but very few pieces have me true inspiration.

Loved this place. Knew I would after reading the mostly negative reviews. The same people who worry about weeds in their lawns and never, ever drew outside the lines. Anyways, the pieces and the placements are too numerous to mention but we loved every step. From the Stuart Davis to the Lombardo of JFK, the Joan Mitchell to the Rothko,... More

The diverse and ever-changing displays of great and not so great works, depending on your artistic viewpoints is always welcomed here. The Walker Gardens are a true delight to experience. Here also is the home of the "Cherry & Spoon", I have yet to get tired of looking at it and the fun that so many people and families enjoy... More

The art museum offers a minture golf course next to the sculpture garden this summer. Each hole has been created by an artist. Some are easy but others are quite difficult. My favorite was the one where members of your party stand on plaster feet and you have to putt around them to get to the hole. Go early. We... More

The Walker is devoted almost entirely to art of the 20th and 21st centuries; the prime exhibit when I was there was a look at pop art worldwide. If this is your style, you'll find a strong collection here with a lot of different artists well represented. The space itself is appropriately modern and attractive, and the staff very helpful.

Visited the Walker Art Center next to Loring Park especially to do the "artist inspired" miniature golf they had on exhibit. When you purchase a round you get free admission into the center. Enjoyed viewing the many pieces of art on exhibit also. The pass is good for a week.
