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.

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.

Art of Fire: Glass Art from the WAM Collection
04/04/2015 to 03/05/2016Re-imagined anew and opening in April, the museum presents a compelling arrangement of the distinguished and growing glass art collection. for the new display, the museum consulted with Seattle-based independent curator and craft scholar Vicki Halper. Notably, Halper curated WAM's popular 2014 summer exhibition, Australian Glass Art, American Links for the Museum of Glass. Revealing WAM's rich holdings, the variety, quality, and artistry of Steuben glass will be presented. In fascinating ways, the exquisite work of the Steuben Glass Works, the world-class glass manufacturer (1903-2011), continues to beguile and inspire artists. The new installation will acknowledge and examine how contemporary glass artists explore the continuing allure and legacy of Steuben. Magnificent work by such living artists as Dante Marioni and Kiki Smith will be on view. The new collection display also features a new commission - an elaborate, Steuben-inspired candelabrum - by glass artist Andy Paiko. This special work will be effervescent! It incorporates an abundantly enthusiastic array of forms and techniques first developed by Steuben. Paiko's tapering candle holders that hang gracefully from the central form, each demonstrate the Steuben "air-twist" technique, perfected by designer George Thompson. The cinched, bell-shaped forms of the upper part of the large-scale candle holder are typical of Thompson's designs. WAM's collection includes original sketches by Thompson during his time working for Steuben, making Paiko's re-imagining of Thompson's forms particularly relevant to the collection. If you haven't spent time in the museum's glass art galleries recently, you should visit soon and prepare to be impressed by the beauty and history of this special artform!

Liza Lou: Gather (one million)
06/04/2015 to 09/13/2015This summer, WAM is proud to feature a beautiful and poetic installation by world-renowned artist Liza Lou. The exhibition will feature Lou's Gather (one million), a shimmering 150-square-foot golden field. To make the work, nine million beads in varying shades of gold were threaded onto cut wire to make one million blades of grass. Lou systematically counted, weighed, blended and divided the blades into equal wheat-like sheaves. This work of art will be presented along with Lou's newest series of work--large wall-hanging color fields of glass beads that resemble open skies and sunsets. The painterly freedom of the installation evokes the seasonal regeneration of landscape and the abundance of harvest. The Wichita presentation of Liza Lou's Gather (one million) has been generously sponsored by F. Price Cossman Memorial Trust, INTRUST Bank, Trustee, and Belger Cartage Service, Inc. Additional support has been provided by the Berry Foundation, Gridley Family Foundation, and Sonia Greteman and Chris Brunner.
Shawn Decker: Prairie
06/04/2015 to 09/13/2015Described as an electro-acoustic sound installation, Shawn Decker's Prairie recalls the sights and sounds of its namesake via a field of speakers and thin, swaying metal rods. Thin, tall brass rods glisten in the light as individual motors, with small speakers mounted to the top, cause them to vibrate and sway. Each brass stem operates independently, and the entire installation--including hundreds of these rods--is programmed to operate in randomized patterns of sound and movement. "It is much more fun as a creator to compose a piece that is continuously surprising you," Decker noted. "I will often laugh out loud when it does something I don’t expect. The element of change and indeterminacy allows you to become a much more active listener." Prairie is more than a soundscape. It is an environment that will entrance both eye and ear. The concepts presented in the installation--nature and technology, sound and movement, sculpture and performance--come together to enchant the viewer and invite a reconsideration of the elements that make the prairie unique. Decker holds a doctorate in music theory and composition from Northwestern University. He is a senior faculty member at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been frequently performed, seen, and heard in the U.S. and Europe. Recent exhibitions of both solo and collaborative work have shown at venues such as the Museum of Art and Design in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the 21st Century Museum in Kanazawa, Japan, and numerous others.
Spirited: Prohibition in America
09/01/2015 to 10/20/2015During the era of Prohibition, Americans could no longer manufacture, sell, or transport intoxicating beverages from 1920 until 1933. A new exhibit, Spirited: Prohibition in America, on view September 1st – October 20th at the Historical Museum, explores this tumultuous time in American history, when flappers and suffragists, bootleggers and temperance lobbyists, and legends, such as Al Capone and Carry Nation, took sides in this battle against the bottle.  Organized by the National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, PA, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance, Kansas City, MO, Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the era of Prohibition, when America went “dry.” Visitors will learn about the complex issues that led to the repeal through the 21st Amendment in 1933. Through the exhibition, visitors will learn about the amendment process, the changing role of liquor in American culture, Prohibition’s impact on the roaring ‘20s, the role of women, and how current liquor laws vary from state to state.  Spirited has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It has been adapted and toured by Mid-America Arts Alliance.
Stuart Allen: Kansas, Low Resolution
06/04/2015 to 09/13/2015Wichita-born Stuart Allen is a visual artist whose work deals with fundamental elements of perception such as light and time. This summer, WAM is pleased to present a selection of work from Allen's photography. Each image is an extraction of only a few select pixels from larger photographs of landscapes taken in Wichita. The result is a beautiful chromatic square with gentle color shifts that invokes not just the moment of the image's capture but the perpetual changes of nature. Allen studied architecture at the University of Kansas and graduated from the photography and video department of the Kansas City Art Institute in 1993. He lives and works in San Antonio, Texas. Located in the John W. and Mildred L. Graves Gallery and Louise and S.O. Beren Gallery
