Cheryl Walker
Local Artist In Residence

Inspired by fluid movement and organic form, Cheryl Walker’s drawing-centered practice is informed by automatic drawing and intuitive mark-making. Her interdisciplinary work is inspired by an ephemeral exploration of the connection between all life forms.

Walker has engaged in collaborative performance at REDCAT and MOCA. She has performed with Emilie Conrad, Rachel Rosenthal’s TOHUBOHU! Extreme Theater Ensemble, Simone Forti, and many others. Walker was recently commissioned to create a nine-venue participatory public art project in Minneapolis, Minnesota and she has created numerous public art installations in the greater Los Angeles region.

Walker completed an MFA in Drawing and Painting at California State University, Long Beach as well as graduate studies in Design at UCLA and English at the University of Minnesota. She currently teaches at Long Beach City College, Santa Monica Emeritus College and MOCA. Walker has also facilitated numerous educational partnerships and collaborations with LA Master Chorale, LA Opera, LA Philharmonic, UCLA Live, LAUSD Teachers, LA County Museum of Art, Craft and Folk Art Museum, Japanese American National Museum, Torrance Art Museum, and the Armory Center for the Arts.
