During the Day

Once again we’ll call the walker Art Center home for our daytime activities. Home to contemporary art and so much more since 1927, it provides great spaces for daytime talks, workshops and labs. In 2005 a major expansion was completed, resulting in aesthetically and technologically sophisticated facility. Some may recall that in 2016 another large construction project was completed, we have the pleasure of calling this newly updated space home for the week. Amenities include a restaurant, a cafe, and various relaxing outdoor spaces including a sculpture park, plus a pretty satisfying bookstore if you dig design, art & architecture. We’ll be here 10-5ish everyday during Eyeo.

Each evening keynotes and mixers will be held at different stunning venues around town. See below.

Find a Place to Stay

Get a place to stay near the Walker Art Center. (Near Loring Park) We recommend booking your hotel or AirBnB as soon as possible. Hotel demand in June is pretty heavy – it’s one of the few lovely months we have here between winters. We aren’t arranging room blocks at hotels this year. It’s a financial risk, and often individuals can find better rates than the hotels offer for blocks.
