Robert Bechtle, 68 Nova, 1972.1974: Selections from the Permanent Collection
September 5 – December 14, 2014

Beren Gallery

As we close out our year of 40th anniversary celebrations at the Ulrich, 1974: Selections from the Permanent Collection looks back at the year that it all began.

The exhibition highlights works from the collection that were either created in 1974 or added that year to the Ulrich’s permanent collection. Through this exercise we discover that works from the major movements of the decade—feminism, conceptual art, funk art—were frequently collected long after they were made.

2012 – 2016

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.
