08/18/2020

Today our nation celebrates the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment, giving women the right to vote. To mark the occasion, the Ulrich is presenting the online exhibition “10 x 10: Ten Women / Ten Prints,” which was published by the Berkeley Art Center in 1995 to commemorate that year’s International Women’s Day (March 8th) and the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th amendment.

Each of the portfolio’s ten prints was created by a different artist. All are women, and as a group, they represent the racial and ethnic diversity of the United States. A number of the artists are also social justice activists. Their prints tackle both the public and private struggles that women from different backgrounds and walks of life still strive to overcome in our culture.

The portfolio was exhibited at the Ulrich in its entirety in 1996. We are excited to make it widely available to viewers this year.

You can visit the exhibition slideshow on our website: https://ulrich.wichita.edu/ulrich_exhibition/10-x-10-ten-women-ten-prints/?collection_type=exhibition&collection_id=2004

If you’re a WSU student, be sure to fill out the online form to qualify for the prize giveaway! Educators will also note that the online exhibition is an excellent teaching resource, too.

Happy anniversary! Be sure to check out this groundbreaking online exhibition!

I need a favor from you. Can you push this email to anyone who has an email for Ronald Christ to see if he can authenticate the above two works. These are the two works both on canvas that I have donated to the Raymer Society charity auction and Red Barn Museum of Lindsborg and if I can firm up the authentication then it would benefit all arts of Kansas. These works where found with signed WSU graduate works of Italy at that time in the 1990s known Wichita Art authority to possibly attribute these to Mr. Christ. Please feel free to forward to anyone you think may help. I need to know one way or other by Friday. I thank everone in advance for your cooperation.
We invite you to attend a first of its kind discussion in Kansas. The event is open to scholars and the public. FREE. Refreshments will be served.

Hi, when does Kevin Rabas come? I saw him on your mailer but can't find online -- is this the best website to refer to?
One of today's tours using our new gallery chairs. Their assignment was to choose one of our works and write a paper on it. The chairs allowed them to sit right in front of their chosen works so they could take notes on the piece and record their reactions to it.
