For very non-artsy reasons, the Walker Art Center is closed today

The reason has more to do with the sewer.

As if it wasn't already hard enough to get to the Walker Art Center these days, with all the construction work around the building and Sculpture Garden, the art center also had a main-line sewer back-up this week.

This comes from their twitter page, which states that due to the issue the museum will be closed on Wednesday. For all of you planning to go to the Butch Cassidy and the Sundance screening, it has been pushed back to Thursday.
