Beach Museum of Art
In honor of K-State's 150th birthday, works from the museum's John Steuart Curry collection will be on display in the UMB Theater from 10 a.m. to noon. This is a rare opportunity to see some of the preliminary sketches for the murals in the Kansas state capitol building. Don Lambert, a K-State journalism graduate who was instrumental in bringing the collection to the Beach Museum, will speak at 11 a.m. about Curry's significance.
Come explore the “Museum of Wonder," featuring an eclectic collection of K-State artifacts, curiosities and hidden treasures in celebration of K-State’s sesquicentennial. Continue your exploration by browsing the “Library of Wonder.” Also on display is “Konza,” a large kinetic sculpture inspired by the natural beauty and movement of the nearby Konza prairie. Galleries are open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The museum also will host a gallery search with prizes from 10 a.m. to 5 pm.
