Celebrate opening of 'Dinner and a Mid-Night Snack' exhibition

Submitted by Martha Scott

Dinner & Mid-Night snack

Come celebrate the opening of the "Dinner and a Mid-Night Snack" exhibition from 5-7 p.m. Feb. 5, at the Beach Museum of Art.

Musician Aaron Martin from Topeka will give a special in-gallery performance from 5:30-6 p.m. Refreshments will be available throughout the evening.

Donald J. Mrozek, professor in the history department, and R. Scott Dorman have donated close to 300 works on paper to the Beach Museum of Art. "Dinner and a Mid-Night Snack," a selection of works from Mrozek and Dorman's gift, reflects the collectors' shared love of music, literature, postmodern art and architecture.

Katie Kingery-Page, associate professor of landscape architecture and regional & community planning, and Thomas Bell, associate professor and librarian for faculty and graduate services, guest curated this exhibition. Featured are more than 60 works, primarily prints, dating from the late 1960s through the 2000s. The exhibition title is drawn from a translation of the Chinese text in Chryssa's "Calligraphy III," which may have originally appeared on a restaurant advertisement.

This event is free and open to all. The Beach Museum of Art is on the southeast corner of the K-State campus at 14th Street and Anderson Avenue.
