You Gotta Have Art: Celebrating 20 Years
New Installation of the Permanent Collection

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its opening, the museum unveiled a new look for the permanent collection galleries. Drawing on the twentieth anniversary celebration theme “You Gotta Have Art,” the galleries feature works from a range of periods, displayed together to highlight particular themes and stimulate dialogue. Expect to see gallery favorites by John Steuart Curry and Shirley Smith alongside works re-emerging from art storage after a long hiatus. Also on view are new acquisitions by significant contemporary Kansas artists, such as Roger Shimomura, Jane Booth, and Andrzej Zieliński, as well as promised gifts to the collection borrowed for this festive year.
