For week 37 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we’re taking a closer look at the Friends of the Library and the Friends of Art, as well as some of the artwork they’ve purchased for the permanent collection, partly to say thank you and partly to inspire new members to join.
We asked the artists in our current art exhibit, Kansas Masters, what advice they have for new artists and what the word “master” means to them.
It’s week 36 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series, and in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re taking a closer look at our Jorge López collection of santos wood carvings.
Jay Nelson, co-owner of the Strecker-Nelson Art Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas and the force behind this biennial exhibit, gives a wonderful interview about the history of the show, how he defines a “master” and what he hopes you take away from this exhibit. Kansas Masters opens at 9AM on September 2.
Our annual Altered Book workshop is just around the corner, so for week 35 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series we thought it would be cool to feature our Book Art Collection.
It’s hot. It’s summer. Sticking with a heat theme, week 34 of our Kansas sesquicentennial video series is dedicated to our collection of Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps.
