Collections

Since its founding in 1940, the Walker Art Center has collected the visual, performing, and media arts of our time. A reflection of our multidisciplinary mission and the increasingly cross-disciplinary practice of artists, Walker Collections reflect a diverse range of artistic pursuits, including: a permanent collection of visual arts, the Ruben/Bentson Film & Video Study Collection, performing arts commissions, the library’s Rosemary Furtak Collection of artists’ books, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company Collection, and the Digital Arts Study Collection.
