The Walter Art Gallery is a contemporary art space that celebrates blurring lines and boundaries. The name “Walter” stems from the Walter Project’s initial creation, Walter the Bus, the World’s Largest Volkswagen Bus. More than a massive replica, Walter is a work of art that aims to inspire creative energy.
The gallery aspires to capture that same energy by supporting and celebrating the work of unique and experimental artists and that of participants in our non-profit’s workshops.
Founded in 2012, the gallery recently became part of The Walter Hive, a 501c3. The Walter Hive is devoted to teaching artistic and maker skills to as many people as we can so they will experience the empowerment of creating and changing the world. Our workshops provide opportunities for sustainable skill set development for the youth and adults who participate.
We also know that the power of connecting people through compassion, art and creative expression is a way to weave positivity within our community.
No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist. – Oscar Wilde
