In addition to launching a series of billboards featuring art from its collection, WSU’s Ulrich Museum in August is adding a new sculpture to its world-renowned collection.
The Ulrich commissioned Alice Aycock, recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award in Contemporary Sculpture, to create “Twister Grande (tall)” for installation on the Innovation Campus. The Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection’s 80 pieces are accessible to the public throughout the campus.
Since the Ulrich has been closed to visitors because of the pandemic, the museum will unveil 20 billboards around Wichita showing works from the permanent collection from July through November.
“Our goal is to reach as many people as possible,” said Ulrich Director Leslie Brothers, who created the public art campaign. “We want people to know that they matter and that this art experience is for everyone.”
