Hues Music and Dance in Art from the Wichita Art Museum Collection August 22 2015 through February 28 2016 Rhythm and Hues explores the influence of music on modern and contemporary art practices Both forms of artistic expression share compositional and stylistic similarities In Lester Johnson s densely packed composition City Women the figures seem to pulse with energy Their arms and legs are caught in beautiful stylized movements reminiscent of a complicated musical score Johnson s work was heavily influenced by jazz and it demonstrates the same shifts between tones and design using bold colors and angled figures to mimic the sound of instruments interacting tangling in an exchange of ideas Drawn from the permanent collection the works of art in Rhythm and Hues explore the parallel nature of visual art and music From regional musical styles such as bluegrass to cultural expressions such as American Indian dances to the birth of jazz in the early modern era music and visual art are intimately intertwined On view in the DeVore Gallery More Less Even More Art We Love November 14 2015 through February 28 2016 The three part Art We Love exhibition series wraps up with its final

3 8 x 38 3 8 inches Wichita Art Museum Roland P Murdock Collection Storytelling Highlights and Insights from the Wichita Art Museum Collection Ongoing Every work of art has a story to tell When John Steuart Curry was growing up in on his family farm near Dunavant Kansas he would often wander into the high fields of corn I remember he wrote wandering through them and being over powered by the fear of being lost in their green confines At 35 years of age Curry returned to those fields to capture in his work the same sense of drama he felt beneath our windblown Kansas skies For Curry Kansas Cornfield represented the story of his youth on a Kansas farm When Curry s Kansas Cornfield entered WAM s permanent collection a new chapter in its tale was written and a new story began The work was the first painting collected by the Wichita Art Museum As the foundational work of art for the new museum the painting came to symbolize WAM s commitment to both the highest caliber American art and to Kansas audiences Today Kansas Cornfield has become a part of many visitors personal stories Brett Zongker an Associated Press journalist based in Washington D C recently featured the painting on his popular Twitter feed As a self described son of Kansas the painting represents home to Zongker Museums by their very nature are repositories of incredible stories The Wichita Art Museum has introduced its visitors to the best American artwork and has been a part of thousands of engaging stories In celebration of the museum s upcoming 80th anniversary in 2015 Storytelling a reinstallation of the permanent collection celebrates the histories mysteries and anecdotes that make the Wichita Art Museum collection unlike any other Each and every one of WAM s objects has a story to tell What influenced its creation Who is pictured How did the work come to Wichita Storytelling invites visitors to take another look at familiar favorites from the collection as well as important works that have been off view for many years We hope that the artworks inspire a meaningful encounter with the past one that is relevant to everyone s personal story today On view in the Louise Caldwell Murdock
