Rita Blitt collection coming to Mulvane

Washburn Review Staff

The Mulvane Art Museum will be receiving a new collection of works. The collection belongs to award-winning contemporary painter, sculptor and filmmaker Rita Blitt, a Kansas City native. The collection and archive are called “Dance of the Line: Rita Blitt in Motion.” All of the works are paintings and drawings that celebrate music, dance and life, all of which Blitt has a deep love for.

In addition to making art, Blitt also has her own initiative called Art BLITTz, which was designed to share her work with nonprofit organizations that are in need of art to liven up their business spaces.

Blitt has been working with the Washburn Foundation since the fall of 2015 to make the collection happen.

It will appear at the Mulvane from August 29 through December 23, with a reception on November 4 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. For more information, contact the Mulvane Art Museum at 785-670-1124.
