FALL NEWSLETTER 2017
MUSEUM OF WALKING
Dear MoW Friends, Advocates, and Supporters:
MoW's programming is heating up now that temperatures are cooling down in Phoenix. Actually, the temperature is still ferociously hot in Arizona but so is our Fall programming! We are featuring a number of walks curated and led by creatives including Jaclyn Roessel, Christopher Jagmin, Adriene Jenik, Julie Hampton, and Ambur Gore. We will continue contemplative full moon walks so be sure to read below for those dates.
Looking back on the past year, the Museum of Walking had a productive Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 with highly attended full moon walks, a new Dog Walk series, multiple publications and radio interviews, and the successful launch of projectWALK, MoW's multi-city, multi-institutional program — that will occur every five years — focused on the everyday activity of walking. The apex of projectWALK programming was theWALK, MoW's inaugural large-scale contemplative walk and fundraising event at the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area in Downtown Phoenix. Almost 500 people attended and we are looking forward to theWALK 2018 happening Saturday, March 17, 2018!
