Walker Art Center – Saturday is Kids Day by Ann Treacy

On Saturday we got our act together early and we went to the Free First Saturday at the Walker Art Center. The big thrill was creating their prints. They each got cardboard and rubber that they could cut up to paste to the cardboard to use as a printing block. Then a steamroller drove over the paper to create a print. It was cool. The Walker is trying to create 1000 prints over the summer – and now the girls will be part of that big art exhibit.

Another cool thing was the Trisha Brown dancers. We didn’t see much of their show; I’m hoping to go back on Thursday to see more. But we did see one of the dancers walk down the side of the Walker. It was fun to see but he made it look so easy – in a scary way.

We also went to see the Design for the Other 90 percent exhibit, which was really great. I wrote about it in a work blog so I won’t re-write it here.

We had a great day. Then we went to lunch with Aunt Mary and Anita to celebrate Aine’s birthday. The girls were glad to do something so like home. (I know for some people a home cooked would be like home – but restaurants are much homier to us.)

At night Patrick and I went to the Guthrie to see The Secret Fall of Constance Wilde. It was a great show – very somber and dark, just like I like a play!
