'Picturing Kansas' features Kansas artists at the Beach Museum of Art
From scenic prairies to bucolic farms to the architecture of Kansas' agricultural industry, "Picturing Kansas" features more than 100 years of works by Kansas artists reflecting a sense of place.
The exhibition includes works of both famous and lesser-known figures. Several paintings have not previously been on view in the galleries.
Artists represented in "Picturing Kansas" include painter Thomas Johnston; iconic Kansas artists Birger Sandzen, John Steuart Curry, and William Dickerson; and contemporary Kansas artists such as Stan Herd, Diana Werts, Kim Casebeer and Lisa Grossman. The exhibition is a cornerstone for the museum's popular "Picturing Kansas" school tour program.
"Picturing Kansas" is on view at the Beach Museum of Art through June 1, 2019.
