FOR Paula Korber Debacker
After experiencing many tests and biopsies, Paula was diagnosed December, 2012, with an unusual form of cancer called Spindle Cell Lymphoma. She started her
first Chemotherapy treatment in January and at this time is will have 5 additional
treatments. Then the doctors will run more tests to determine the next step.
Because Jostens closed their Topeka plant, Paula lost her job after 30 years. We all
know how expensive those medical bills are, plus she has deductibles and co-pays to cover. Let’s help Paula out by showing our support.
Any donation of CASH, Silent Auction Items, or your time, is greatly appreciated.

The Mulvane Art Museum is located at 17th and Jewell Streets on the campus of Washburn University.
Small Deaths, an exhibit of hand-colored photographs by Arizona artist Kate Breakey will be on exhibit at the Mulvane Art Museum February 1-June 9, 2013.This exhibit is on loan from the Whittliff Gallery of Southwestern & Mexican Photography, an archive and creative center established at Southwest Texas State University, San Marcos, TX, to celebrate the photographic arts.
Since her childhood in South Australia, photographer-artist Kate Breakey has been moved by the often unnoticed animals that live, and die, in our proximity. She has taken care to memorialize these tiny creatures--young birds too small to fly, the careless lizard--in her hand-colored, large format photographs. These delicate and quite common animals--sensitively portrayed and vibrantly colored--seem, quite paradoxically, to come alive again.
The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, February 1 from 5-8pm.
Museum, ArtLab and Gift Shop hours are Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday and Sunday 1-4.
Admission to the Museum and the ArtLab are free and open to the public. Free parking is conveniently located to the west of the Museum.

Haney was born in Strong City, Kansas in 1939, but he grew up in Topeka. He entered Washburn University in 1957 as an undergraduate, and graduated in 1961.
