FREE WITH GALLERY ADMISSION



As a Walker artist-in-residence in 2001, photographer Catherine Opie spent the winter documenting the simple and oddly beautiful ice-fishing houses and rigs that dot Minnesota lakes. Last fall she returned to the Twin Cities to photograph the skyway systems that connect downtown office buildings in a labyrinth of tunnels that hover above the streets. The culmination of her yearlong residency is Catherine Opie: Skyways & Icehouses, an exhibition exploring the vernacular architecture of Minnesota and its ties to unique regional experiences. In addition to the artist's discussion of her work, this program also features area actors reading stories about skyways and ice fishing written by local writers. Meet in Gallery 7.
