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.
For more information call 670-1124 or check the web site at www.washburn.edu/mulvane.
