THe Musuem of Walking by Leigh McCarthy

"I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks—who had a genius, so to speak, for sauntering" — Henry David Thoreau

It is true that few seem to appreciate the art of walking. However, recently The Museum of Walking opened dedicated to the advancement of walking as an art practice. How genius is that? Founded by the artists Angela Ellsworth and Steven J. Yazzie, the Museum serves as a resource which houses a small but mighty archive about the rich history of meandering.
