Kathryn Wood mastered the art of walking sometime in 1970. A few years later, she quick-stepped through a degree in theatre from UC Irvine, and eventually meandered into a Masters of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. She has perambulated for over two decades in San Francisco, well-known for being a rewarding walking city. She prefers urban landscape to pastoral ones, and believes that the perfect walk ends with a good lunch and an excellent book.
The Museum of Walking would like to acknowledge Bruce W. Ferguson* as the original inspiration and instigator for a museum dedicated to walking. We hope to honor the spirit of that initial conversation.
*Ferguson is an international art curator, writer, and president at Otis College of Art & Design. He curated the exhibition Walking and Thinking and Walking at the Louisisana Museum in Denmark in 1996 and encouraged Rebecca Solnit to write the book Wanderlust: A History of Walking.
