Barb Abney to Host the Walker's Internet Cat Video Festival


Each year, the Walker Art Center invites cat lovers to submit their best vids for inclusion in the Internet Cat Video Festival. Thousands gather on the museum's lawn (or at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds), to take in the best YouTube clips, meet celebrity cats, and wear their crazy cat lady finest.
