Around the World in 88 Days: Selections from the Permanent Collection
June 1, 2011 – August 28, 2011
From a statue of a Sino-Tibetan Buddha from the 19th century to an Inuit stone print by Lucy Qinnuayuak (1915-1982), the works in this exhibition from the museum’s permanent and study collections will enable visitors to travel the world with a group of international artists. The 88-day exhibition compliments the Kansas Library Association’s summer reading program, “One World, Many Stories.”
Visitors’ visual journey will include ceremonial masks from Africa, Chinese ivories, ceramic pieces by Pablo Picasso and New Mexican pueblo potter Maria, a statue of a Dancing Shiva, and prints by Japanese artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858). A free Summer Kick-Off open house will be held June 12 from 10 a.m. to noon with projects and refreshments.
Summer programming developed by K-State intern Colby Cain, is inspired by the exhibition.
