The Walker Art Center was filled with excitement and wonder at January’s Free First Saturday Birthday Bash. Visitors celebrated the 75th anniversary of the Walker Art Center by enjoying cupcakes, art making, films, and performances. Families had a chance to walk inside a hot air balloon, chat with tour guides about the history of art in the galleries and dress up for an art opening. Photographer Erin Smith was there to capture the faces and the fun during the festive day.
