The Museum of Walking (MoW) is an artist led educational resource center committed to the advancement of walking as an art practice.

theWALK is the annual fundraising event for the Museum of Walking at the Rio Salado Habitat Restoration Area, a former landfill now home to burrowing owls, beaver, over 200 bird species, and lush riparian vegetation in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. theWALK promotes meaningful community engagement, public health, and sustainability awareness while enhancing creative and divergent thinking.

Focusing on the everyday activity of walking and listening, this 90-minute silent walk presents an opportunity for the public to experience a culturally and historically significant site with one thousand other people moving together in an attentive way through public space.

The proceeds generated by theWALK directly benefit the work of the Museum of Walking including museum exhibitions, artist honorariums, research, artist-led mindful walks, community partnerships, social engagement and outreach for the only museum in the United States of America solely dedicated to the practice of art and walking. Additionally, partial proceeds will go to support Native American Connections.

theWALK is open to everyone. The trail is paved and accessible and parents / children are welcome to join a child-friendly Wave group. Please, no animals.
