Opening Reception for New Exhibition of Student & Faculty Works

The Kansas Board of Regents has launched the Artwork Loan Program to celebrate the visual arts by exhibiting select works by Kansas art faculty and their students here at the Board office. Our partner for the 2014-2015 academic year is Wichita State University, who is curating this inaugural exhibition.

From the Director, Dr. Royce Smith – "The work in exhibition at the Kansas Board of Regents reflects the three hallmarks of the Wichita State University experience: creativity, innovation and play – all of which are necessary for today's students to transform ideas into the tangible influences, unique products, powerful gestures and thought-provoking works of tomorrow. With a world-class faculty, a diverse student body and a renewed focus on the ways art and design programs can serve as the foundation for creative industry, the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries is preparing students for an increasingly dynamic world in need of innovators who can think (and create) deftly, globally and proficiently."

Join us to celebrate the opening of "Create. Innovate. Play. A Showcase of Excellence in the School of Art, Design, and Creative Industries at Wichita State University." Light refreshments will be served and participating artists will be in attendance.

DATE OF EVENT: Wednesday, November 19, 2014
TIME: 12-1:15pm
LOCATION: Kansas Board of Regents Offices
(Curtis Statehouse Building, 1000 SW Jackson, Suite 520, Topeka)
