Beach Museum of Art

From 10 a.m. to noon, participate in gallery activities and art projects.
 
Rooted in art
Explore the Beach Museum’s collection of Kansas and regional art from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is always free!
 
Rooted in place
Wander through The Meadow, a half-acre learning landscape of prairie plants native to the Flint Hills, located just north of the museum.
 
Rooted in stone
Walk through “Stan Herd: Cairns on the Beach.” This artistic installation features dry stone cairns, or mounds of rock, complemented with special plantings.
 
Rooted in the prairie
National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson has explored natural landscapes and human cultures around the world for 30 years. But, his roots are in his Kansas upbringing and the subjects he found close to home. “Beneath the Prairie Sky” explores life and meaning on the Great Plains.
 
Uprooted
Following Pearl Harbor, military areas were established along the West Coast to imprison foreigners. The exhibit, “Minidoka on My Mind: Paintings and Prints by Roger Shimomura,” is a series inspired by one family’s imprisonment. Similarly, “Behind the Glass Eye: Photographs by Toyo Miyatake” features well-known scenes inside a war relocation center. Experience the story of artistic lives interrupted by war.
