Showcased in this stunning, expansive, well-designed volume are more than 650 beautifully reproduced works of art. Co-authored by the Walker's curators and staff, and more than 30 Walker alumni, this book draws heavily on Walker archival material to serve as both a history of the institution and a primer on modern and contemporary art.

Byatt, Joshua Clover, Arthur Danto, Dave Eggers, Darby English, Annie Proulx, David Shapiro, and others.
