Future Exhibitions

Water Stories by Lynn Benson
2018 Friends of the Beach Museum of Art Gift Print Artist

February 13 – May 26, 2018

In 1969, the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio, burst into flames due to sparks falling on oil-covered debris floating on its surface. The news caught Lynn Benson's attention and inspired her to study how human activity affects a vitally important resource: water. Benson's multi-media works in this exhibition represent bodies of water impacted by development and politics.

Here, and Now.
Kansas State University Department of Art Faculty Exhibition

March 6 – May 12, 2018

The works in this exhibition represent the studio practices of fifteen members of the Kansas State University studio art faculty. These works, which vary in concept and construction, were created by a diverse group of artists from across the nation and around the world who have now found a common home here in Manhattan, Kansas. Chad Alligood, Chief Curator of American Art at the Huntington Library, will judge the submitted works and announce a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place and a best in show at the exhibition opening.

Summer Idyll
