The Power of Place for the Midwestern Artist
Join Dr. Allison Smith, associate professor, art history, in an engaging discussion of art-making in Kansas. Well-known artists such as Aaron Douglas and John Steuart Curry will be addressed, as well as lesser-known Kansas folk artists, including M.T. Liggett and S.P. Dinsmoor (creator of the Garden of Eden). From 19th-century European immigrants (Birgir Sandzen), to contemporary trail blazers (the internationally recognized Roger Shimomura), Smith offers an informative introduction to Kansas art.
