SUMMARY   Services Excellence Summary

Myrtle Agnew Walker is the name of The MAW Gallery. She was a gifted artist who championed art, education, and children. Myrtle loved art and was delighted to introduce people of all ages and their appreciation of sculptures, paintings and other artworks. Myrtle longed to be an artist as a young girl. When Myrtle was in her senior year at Kirkwood, Missouri (Mo.), Northwestern University gave her an award for her artistic talent. The achievement of High School was remarkable in the 1930s. Although the scholarship paid tuition, Myrtle didn't have enough money to buy books, materials, or room and board. Myrtle later became a generous philanthropist after she and her husband established a profitable company. Her scholarship program has given more than 200 students an opportunity they didn't have: to pursue art careers and continue their education. Myrtle's husband and she generously supported many philanthropic initiatives, including the scholarship program and children’s art studios. Myrtle was a successful businesswoman who worked side by side with her husband to build their family's company into an international organization. She was a dedicated mother to her four children and a community leader. As a Girl Scout leader and Sunday school teacher as well as an organizer for Vacation Bible School, hospital sewing ladies, Vacation Bible School, church sewing, quilt-making, and board member, her children were all involved in their upbringing. She had seven grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. Myrtle was 95 when she died. She loved to create art and place it in surprising places so that everyone could enjoy it. They include the "Myrtle's Turtles", massive bronze sculptures that can be found at The University of Texas at Austin Nursing School, and other places across the United States. Myrtle Walker received the Missouri Arts Award in Philanthropy in 2015 and the Missouri Art Education "Art for the Heart” award in 2015. Myrtle Walker's daughter Dr. Mary Walker opened the MAW Gallery in 2018. She wanted to carry on her legacy of spreading joy and beauty through art.
