Artists Angela Ellsworth and Steven Yazzie Open Museum of Walking in Tempe

Tucked away on the second floor of ASU's Tower Center Building is a small room with AstroTurf floors and a shiny new glass door. If you peek in, you will see a quote on the wall. It comes from Rebecca Solnit's Wanderlust: A History of Walking and reads: "Walking allows us to be in our bodies and in the world without being made busy by them. It leaves us free to think without being wholly lost in our thoughts."

Welcome to the Museum of Walking.
