Wichita State’s Ulrich Museum of Art has reopened to the public with four exhibitions on display through May 8.
“Gordon Parks: I, too, am America” and “Renée Stout: Ghosts” are part of a citywide collaboration featuring the work of African American artists.
The 40 photographs in the Parks exhibition come from the Ulrich’s holdings of 170 images created by the internationally known Kansas native. This exhibition highlights pieces from seven of the stories Parks produced while at LIFE magazine.
A contemporary artist, Stout is known for her reflections on African American heritage and the visual culture of the African diaspora. This exhibition is from 2012 works which are part of the Ulrich collection.
The 23rd Faculty Biennial, “It’s All Part of the Process,” showcases WSU faculty work in a wide range of media as well as the personal processes used in creating them.
“Solving for X=Identity: Sharing Matrilineal Memories” examines home through the eyes of mothers and grandmothers by dance and sociology faculty at WSU.
The Ulrich’s new regular hours (masks and social distancing required) are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Admission is free.
