The Pritzker Prize–winning Swiss architectural firm of Herzog & de Meuron was commissioned in 1999 to develop an expansion for the Walker Art Center.
Part of the concept of the Walker's expansion was to include a number of gathering places where visitors could converge for chance encounters with new people, ideas, and art forms. These apertures are part of having a “town square” like space both inside and outside of the building where people can relax.

Kiki Smith: A Gathering, 1980-2005 exhibition closed at the Walker Art Center #onthisday in 2006. Best known for her provocative depictions of the human form, #KikiSmith has explored a range of subjects, from natural science to mythology. This Walker-organized 25-year survey revealed the startling symbolic potential in Smith’s choice of both traditional and unexpected materials in sculpture and installation. Check out Facebook and Twitter to see more artworks from this exhibition. [Kiki Smith, "Blue Girl" (1998) on loan from the collection of Milly and Arne Glimcher, New York.]
