Walker reveals Summer Music and Movies lineup

The Walker Art Center has announced this summer’s round of music and movies in the park, and the films all center on the theme of time. The Walker is playing off its screening of “Christian Marclay: The Clock,” which opens in the Burnet Gallery June 14.

“The Clock” is itself a compilation of movie clips that feature a shot of a clock or wrist watch, a common technique for marking the passage of time or creating a sense of urgency.
