Sackler Center for Feminist Art. The program will conclude with the presentation of the 2010 Women in the Arts Award to Ms. Walker.

Walker was born in Stockton, California, and grew up in Atlanta. She graduated from the Atlanta College of Art in 1991 and received her M.F.A. from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1994.
