Mulvane Art Museum
Works by William L. Haney, from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, will be exhibited at the Mulvane Art Museum February 1-June 9, 2013. William L. 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. With the encouragement of his professors in the art department at Washburn, such as James Hunt, who was also the Director of the Mulvane Art Museum at the time, Haney developed his life-long commitment to creating art. 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.

A gallery talk, conducted by Dr. Deanna Haney, will take place at the Mulvane Art Museum at noon on February 1st. The exhibit will open with a reception from 5-8pm. The Mulvane Art Museum is located at 17th and Jewell Streets on the campus of Washburn University. Museum, ArtLab and Gift Shop hours are Tuesday 10-7, Wednesday-Friday 10-5, Saturday and Sunday 1-4.
