Mirrors centerpiece of art exhibit

Campus Announcement

Reflections of creativity will be the centerpieces of the exhibition, “Art Works: The Magic of Mirrors,” open Sept. 6 to Oct. 3 at the Mulvane Art Museum, Washburn University. The exhibit will open with a free public reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 5.

Approximately 50 local and regional artists have modified a variety of types and styles of mirrors to create their works of art, with expressions ranging from whimsical to elegant. The exhibit is fashioned after the previous exhibitions, “Sweet Charity” and “Come Back to the Table,” for which artists gave new personality to chairs and tables.

All art work will be available for purchase through silent auction during the run of the exhibition Sept. 6 to Oct. 3. Final bids will be accepted during an auction event set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 4, in the Washburn Room of the Memorial Union. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the Mulvane’s exhibition and education programs.

Tickets for the Oct. 4 auction event are $50 per person and must be purchased by Sept. 19. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, beer and wine will be served.

The exhibit and Oct. 4 event are organized by the Friends of the Mulvane Art Museum to benefit the Mulvane Art Museum.

Museum hours (beginning Sept. 2) are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Friday; and 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. No admission is charged. (The museum is closed Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays through August.) The museum is closed major holidays.
