My first time… at the Walker Art Center
Now, I know I have said it a million times but I truly have the greatest family on Earth. Needless to say, I was so excited when 2/5 of the family aka the parents could make their way “up north” to visit ME! With no real plans on the docket I was thrilled when my mom suggested we head to the Walker. It is a place I have always had intentions to go but hadn’t quite made it. Having mom and dad here was a great excuse to go!
Mom, Dad and I started in The Sculpture Garden arboritum and saw this awesome coy made entirely of glass– who knew that there are palm trees in MINNESOTA?!
After we made it to all of the corners of the sculpture garden it was time to head indoors. As I said I was excited but I was over the moon when the curator told us it was “First Saturday” which means no fee for the entire day!! “Walker here we come!” But not without Beck taking a pit stop and AJ taking a rest!
Check out the wallpaper I “spotted” that led down the hallway (I love museums)!!!!
We made our way down a beautiful hallway…
and through some incredible installations. Here are some of the highlights…aka faves
Miss Mary?? Poppins that is…
Why hello there Mr. Warhol…
Who knew there was a “Meat Dress” in the 50’s… long before Gaga (no love lost)
And one of my favorites of the day– I call it “The Bodies”
After viewing all the galleries, we made our way to the roof
After a few hours roaming the Walker it was onto the rooftop at Britt’s for some Bootleggers and catching up
This past weekend was truly wonderful and blessings in ways I never expected. I have known that my parents were incredible but this weekend drove it home. I have the most wonderfully loving and supportive parents that anyone could ask for. Not only are they my parents, but they are some of my best friends in the ENTIRE WORLD!! I am so blessed and so THANKFUL that they are mine (oh yeah, and my brothers…I guess I can share)!!!
