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.

Grounded in art history, he developed into an artist both scholarly and revolutionary. Haney spent the key years of his professional life in New York City.
