"Precipice" by Drew Peterson

Did you know the Walker Art Center has a membership group specifically designed to involve young professionals in its multiple-disciplinary programming? It’s called the Contemporaries.

For $175 a year (a two-person membership), Contemporaries enjoy all the perks of basic Walker membership, along with reciprocal benefits at more than 400 museums around the country, invitations to private special events and additional access at events like Rock the Garden.

If you haven’t joined the Contemporaries, now is the perfect chance to become a part of the scene.

Next Thursday, Feb. 16, the Contemporaries is offering members the unique opportunity to tour the Burnet Art Gallery at Le Méridien Chambers with curator Jennifer Phelps.
