It was during these early years in Kansas that Bassett Hall explored the artistic possibilities of woodblock printing. 1930 marked the launch of the Prairie Print Makers, with Bassett Hall as the only female founding member.

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

Temporary "Transcribing History" Exhibit in Rotating Gallery
02/28/2015 to 01/15/2016Sending an email miles away is a piece of cake in this day and age, but the written word experienced many radical changes and developments to get to this point. Over the course of five thousand years, changes in written language and how individuals wrote messages changed how human beings recorded their existence and communicated with each other. The Museum of World Treasures invites you to explore these changes in a new Rotating Gallery exhibit, "Transcribing History: Pictographs, Parchment, and the Printing Press." Visit for a glimpse into the history of an important aspect of any civilization and discover how cuneiform on clay tablets paved the way for text messages on smartphones. Experience how the simple act of writing affects many aspects of everyday life and ultimately provides the power to change the world. The Museum’s Rotating Gallery hosts new temporary exhibits on an annual basis. Each year, our Exhibits Committee selects a Student Curator to research, design, and direct the creation of this exhibit under the guidance of the Museum’s Curator of Exhibits and Research, Tim Howard. This year’s Student Curator, Emily Simon, is a Newman University student studying English and history, with a minor in international studies.

"Cock" by Mike Bartlett
03/05/2015 to 03/05/2015Theatre Thursdays presents: "Cock" by Mike Bartlett. John has been in a stable relationship with his boyfriend for a number of years. But when he takes a break, he accidentally falls in love with a woman. Torn between the two, filled with guilt and conflicting emotions, he doesn't know which way to turn. His boyfriend is willing to wait for him to make a decision, but so is his girlfriend. And both are prepared to fight to keep him. As the pressure mounts, a dinner with both parties is arranged, and everyone wants to know. Who is John? What is he? And what will his decision be? A comic discussion of identity and sexuality, the play is specified to be performed with no props or set, so the focus is all on the drama of the situation. "A terrific comedy...Hypnotic and utterly contemporary." ---The New York Times "Exhilarating! Robust and rollicking. Mike Bartlett's dialogue crackles and pops with the rhetoric of vituperation." ---The New Yorker "Never mind its provocative title: COCK is wonderful!" ---The New York Post

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

Temporary "Transcribing History" Exhibit in Rotating Gallery
02/28/2015 to 01/15/2016Sending an email miles away is a piece of cake in this day and age, but the written word experienced many radical changes and developments to get to this point.

The Museum of World Treasures invites you to explore these changes in a new Rotating Gallery exhibit, "Transcribing History: Pictographs, Parchment, and the Printing Press." Visit for a glimpse into the history of an important aspect of any civilization and discover how cuneiform on clay tablets paved the way for text messages on smartphones. Experience how the simple act of writing affects many aspects of everyday life and ultimately provides the power to change the world. The Museum’s Rotating Gallery hosts new temporary exhibits on an annual basis. Each year, our Exhibits Committee selects a Student Curator to research, design, and direct the creation of this exhibit under the guidance of the Museum’s Curator of Exhibits and Research, Tim Howard.

Sorting Out Race Opening Reception
03/07/2015 to 03/07/2015Every day thrift stores across America receive donations with racial imagery – antique advertising cards, collectible salt-and-pepper shakers, vintage children’s books, and mugs with sports team mascots. Are these harmless reminders of past attitudes or do they perpetuate stereotypes about race? Should thrift stores sell these objects? Or should they be “sorted out” of the resale environment? Sorting Out Race arose out of a desire to divert artifacts with racial content to an exhibit that would generate a healthy community conversation about racial stereotypes past and present in order to heighten awareness of our continuing struggles with race. Exhibition runs February 27 through May 24, 2015. The event is free and open to the public.

The five artists chosen for this exhibition--David Emitt Adams, Jody Ake, Ethan Turpin, Heidi Kirkpatrick, and Eric Mertens--explore previously abandoned forms of chemical photography. Going back to 19th-century manuals, these artists rediscover and reinterpret the techniques and magic of photography's pioneers for today's world. On view in the Paul Ross Gallery and Scott and Carol Ritchie Gallery.

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.
Temporary "Transcribing History" Exhibit in Rotating Gallery
02/28/2015 to 01/15/2016Sending an email miles away is a piece of cake in this day and age, but the written word experienced many radical changes and developments to get to this point. Over the course of five thousand years, changes in written language and how individuals wrote messages changed how human beings recorded their existence and communicated with each other. The Museum of World Treasures invites you to explore these changes in a new Rotating Gallery exhibit, "Transcribing History: Pictographs, Parchment, and the Printing Press." Visit for a glimpse into the history of an important aspect of any civilization and discover how cuneiform on clay tablets paved the way for text messages on smartphones. Experience how the simple act of writing affects many aspects of everyday life and ultimately provides the power to change the world. The Museum’s Rotating Gallery hosts new temporary exhibits on an annual basis. Each year, our Exhibits Committee selects a Student Curator to research, design, and direct the creation of this exhibit under the guidance of the Museum’s Curator of Exhibits and Research, Tim Howard. This year’s Student Curator, Emily Simon, is a Newman University student studying English and history, with a minor in international studies.

It was during these early years in Kansas that Bassett Hall explored the artistic possibilities of woodblock printing. 1930 marked the launch of the Prairie Print Makers, with Bassett Hall as the only female founding member.

Text CONCERT to 49798 for concert updates and chances at FREE tickets! "Life is circular. Country just came back to me. It's like the acoustic thing. I did that before the band [Staind]. This is full circle because this was the first music I was ever exposed to as a child." --AARON LEWIS If you want to get to know AARON LEWIS, just listen to The Road. On his first full-length album, the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and guitarist tells one story after another. Echoing traditional country, some of those tales are hilarious and heartwarming, while others are pensive and personal. Nevertheless, they're all equally powerful, vibrant, and unforgettable. For Lewis, The Road continues to wind and surprise like it always has. In 2011, the Staind frontman formally arrived in the country world with the release of his debut EP, Town Line. Highlighted by the success of gold-selling single "Country Boy" featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels, the seven-song EP reached #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #7 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release. Critical praise followed: PEOPLE’s Chuck Arnold said, "He proves to be a natural on nostalgic ballads like 'The Story Never Ends,’ (3/14/11)," while the ASSOCIATED PRESS’ Michael McCall wrote, “He injects a flavor of his own into a polished, commercial country sound in a way that could win over country fans who've never heard of Staind (2/28/11).”

Chipping the Block, Painting the Silk: The Color Prints of Norma Bassett Hall
02/21/2015 to 07/12/2015Guest-curated by Dr. Joby Patterson, Chipping the Block is the first one-woman exhibition of Norma Bassett Hall's work since her death in 1957. Born in Oregon, artist Norma Bassett Hall studied at the Portland Art Association and the Art Institute of Chicago. In 1922 she married Arthur Hall, who had been a fellow student at the Art Institute, and the couple settled in El Dorado Kansas. It was during these early years in Kansas that Bassett Hall explored the artistic possibilities of woodblock printing. 1930 marked the launch of the Prairie Print Makers, with Bassett Hall as the only female founding member. In her work, Hall employed line, color, and pattern with delicate skill, using up to seven blocks for each print.
Curator's Talk: Joby Patterson
03/12/2015 to 03/12/2015Joby Patterson - Remembering Kansas of the 1930s: Norma Bassett Hall's Color Block Prints American artist Norma Bassett hall (1888-1957) found inspiration in the diverse landscapes that she and her husband, artist Arthur William Hall (American, 1889-1981), encountered in their travels and in the places they lived. Bassett Hall resided for nearly two decades in Kansas, and she was the only female artist among the founders of the Prairie Print Makers, a Wichita-based artists' association founded in 1930. Between 1923 and 1944, she created more than a dozen captivating Kansas images. In the 1940s, Bassett Hall was part of a wave of artists experimenting in serigraph, or silkscreen, for fine art rather than advertisement. Dr. Joby Patterson is the guest curator of Chipping the Block, Painting the Silk: The Color Prints of Norma Bassett Hall on view February 21 through July 12. She will share her adventures in uncovering the life and work of Bassett Hall and discuss the artist's techniques and creative vision. A book-signing of Patterson's 2013 publication, Norma Bassett Hall: Catalogue Raisonne of the Block Prints and Serigraphs will follow. Patterson is an art historian specializing in early 20th-century American printmaking and the author of Bertha E. Jaques and the Chicago Society of Etchers, which she began on a Smithsonian Fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in 1990. She taught the history of printmaking at the University of Oregon and lives in Eugene. Galleries open until 6 pm. Free admission. Held in conjunction with "Chipping the Block, Painting the Silk: The Color Prints of Norma Bassett Hall," on view from February 21 through July 12, 2015.

Photographic Wonders: American Daguerreotypes from The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art
01/17/2015 to 05/10/2015Wonderful wonder of wonders!!...Here is a revolution in art! This was the American reaction to the invention and introduction of the photographic daguerreotype in 1839. This winter exhibition presents 82 of the best daguerreotypes from the prized collection of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, now more than 6,500 strong. Wichita museum-goers will explore the advent of photography in these charming, imaginative historical photographs. Daguerreotypes reflect magical bits of reality from a bygone era. Well over a century later, they still hold wonder and appeal. The daguerreotype was at once a science and an art, a documentary tool and a charged emblem of emotion and memory. Very early daguerreotypes are enchanting but technically crude: exposures took many minutes and the images are relatively faint. Rapid progress was achieved as practitioners explored the invention’s commercial potential, especially its use in portraiture. In 1840–1842, exposure times were reduced from minutes to seconds, and the tones of the images were greatly improved. The potentials of photography as we know it today were explored in the daguerreotypes of the 1840s and 1850s. The Wichita presentation will be a reduced selection from the landmark show that opened the new wing at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in 2007. Hallmark Cards developed a world-class early photography collection of 6,500 works that the company donated to the museum as the Bloch Building opened. The scholarly reception of the exhibition and accompanying catalogue has been resoundingly positive and noted as "an unparalleled historical collection of American photography." Wichita audiences will be so impressed by these gems, the accessible learning, and the creative gallery presentation. This exhibition has been organized by The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.

Temporary "Transcribing History" Exhibit in Rotating Gallery
02/28/2015 to 01/15/2016Sending an email miles away is a piece of cake in this day and age, but the written word experienced many radical changes and developments to get to this point.

The Museum of World Treasures invites you to explore these changes in a new Rotating Gallery exhibit, "Transcribing History: Pictographs, Parchment, and the Printing Press." Visit for a glimpse into the history of an important aspect of any civilization and discover how cuneiform on clay tablets paved the way for text messages on smartphones.

Each year, our Exhibits Committee selects a Student Curator to research, design, and direct the creation of this exhibit under the guidance of the Museum’s Curator of Exhibits and Research, Tim Howard.
