WALKER AFTER HOURS
I am more than my martini.
After Hours: Culture with cocktails. Dubbed "the hippest place to be in the Twin Cities," Walker After Hours launched in 1997 as the local happy hour alternative, and since then has attracted more than 100,000 trendy young (and not so young) professionals to the Walker Art Center.
After a brief hiatus, After Hours has returned to much acclaim. These spectacular parties celebrate the world of contemporary art and feature a first look at the Walker's major touring exhibitions. In addition to previewing the Walker exhibitions, After Hours guests can dine on complementary Wolfgang Puck hors d'oeuvres, partake in drinks from the cash bars, and groove to the beat of local DJs. Film, art making, and live music round out the party experience. Guests can also capture the moment at Party People Pictures with a photographic self-portrait projected minutes later on the lobby walls and uploaded to www.flickr.com/groups/walkerafterhours to share with friends and colleagues
The suburbs have always been a fertile space for imagining both the best and the worst of modern social life: middle-class domestic utopia or a dystopic world of homogeneity and conformity? Join us for a unique suburban excursion as we celebrate the opening of Worlds Away: New Suburban Landscapes, the first major museum exhibition to examine both the art and architecture of the contemporary American suburb. Enjoy music, cocktails, complimentary Wolfgang Puck appetizers, film screening, an art-making activity in the Star Tribune Foundation Art Lab, and Party People Pictures.
