Perhaps the Walker’s best people-watching event of the year, Rock the Garden 2013 offered us the perfect opportunity to launch a new feature on Walker SeenThe Visitors.  In the spirit of projects like The Sartorialist, Humans of New York, and others, we’re taking a camera and notepad out into the wide world of the Walker, capturing images and stories of the visitors who animate our galleries and green spaces. First stop: Saturday’s alternately rain-soaked and sunshiny annual outdoor music festival. At Rock the Garden, we found cute kids, fashionistas, global vistors, and photobombers (in this case, Doomtree’s POS) alike. And neon.
