We would like to have a guided tour on the following topics (check more than one box if you are interested in visiting more than one gallery):

looking at the overlooked: Jamal Cyrus, Nathaniel Donnett, Rodney McMillian
September 9 – December 10, 2017

Bringing together the work of Houston-based artists Jamal Cyrus and Nathaniel Donnett with Los Angeles-based artist Rodney McMillian, looking at the overlooked features the work of three individual artists who share similar, yet distinct, approaches to art making. Utilizing common and everyday materials, they construct works that move between the genres of painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, and performance. Employing appropriation as a strategy of production, they incorporate prefabricated objects and imagery into their art, repositioning them in ways that expand our perceptions of history, representation, class, violence, resistance, and cultural practice.

Unmoored Geographies: Works from the Permanent Collection
Beren Gallery: September 9, 2017 – March 25, 2018
Amsden Gallery: September 9 – December 10, 2017

Exploring themes related to space and place, Unmoored Geographies showcases new acquisitions from the Ulrich Museum of Art’s permanent collection. While the individual works may differ in execution and concept, they all share a connection to the notion of movement and challenge the proposition of “place” as something that is fixed and final. Whether referencing geography, architecture, or time, each artist examines how our relationships to site, memory, and physical structures speak to where we, as viewers, stand in relation to them.

Diedrick Brackens: a slow reckoning
September 9 – December 10, 2017

In his textile-based practice, Los Angeles artist Diedrick Brackens explores issues of race, representation, sexuality, and engagement. His works, which take shape as wall hangings, sculptures, and installations, often make use of found items that collapse the distance between “high” and “low” culture. Operating outside of the realm of traditional weaving methodologies, the works reveal their origins as fabrications that are handmade on a loom. Through the incorporation of a diverse range of materials, Brackens creates dynamic and thoughtful works that provide layered reflections on intimacy and being.

We want a tour of the Martin H. Bush Outdoor Sculpture Collection.

This walking tour around the Wichita State University campus affords visitors the opportunity to learn more about sculpture, how it is made, and how it is cared for. Free maps of the outdoor sculpture collection are provided.
