Amsden/ Beren/ Polk/ Wilson Galleries
The Ulrich Museum of Art first opened its doors to the public on December 7, 1974, launching a new era for the students, faculty and staff of Wichita State University, and the greater Wichita
community, to access meaningful encounters with the art of our time. From the iconic Joan Miró mosaic to sculptor Louise Nevelson's trademark false eyelashes, the Ulrich celebrates the
people, stories, and art objects that have helped shape its forty-year history.
Ulrich Underground: Grafly Gallery
Oakland, California-based artist, Lisa Solomon, will mount an exhibition of her work, create a new piece, and participate in community activities, when she visits the Ulrich Museum of Art for the
month of July as an artist-in-residence. While in Wichita, Solomon will use crowd sourcing to create a new installation especially for the Ulrich.
Ulrich Museum façade
"Small Pleasures" is designed for the façade of the Ulrich Museum of Art (Wichita, KS) by Levente Sulyok in place of Joan Miro's monumental mosaic Personnages Oiseaux
(Bird People) (1978). Miro’s mural is under restoration from 2012 through 2016, which is the duration of this project. The installation consists of a pixelated print on a billboard-sized
banner covering the facade, a small waterproof display case mounted in the middle of the banner, and two telescopes installed across the street for the viewing of miniature works displayed in the
case. Each month (or bimonthly), a new item is featured in the 'mini gallery' selected from a pool of submissions. Visit smallpleasures.org for information on how you can submit an object for display.
