The Mulvane Art Museum opened its doors to the annual Washburn Student Art Exhibition April 6, where undergraduate art students are taking the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a public setting and receive feedback from the community. The exhibit features works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, ceramics, photography, printmaking, sculpture, graphic design and mixed media. This array gives students freedom to choose their media of interest and strength. Though many of the works for this exhibit are done by upperclassmen, any undergraduate art student is able to apply. 

Exhibits at the Mulvane are free to the public and the museum has provided extensive outreach to the community since its founding in 1924. In-house art classes, public lectures, family events and community educational experiences are provided to enrich lives through fine art in the community. More than 50,000 people visit the museum each year and take part in the exhibits and educational programs. The Mulvane Art Museum is made possible by Washburn University, the Friends of the Mulvane Art Museum, Inc., and through gifts from corporations, foundations, and individuals.

Museum and ArtLab hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays.

Come see your fellow Ichabods’ art work before Saturday, May 12, and let them know what you think.
