Free and plenty of fun for everyone, Family and Community Days feature special activities that echo the artwork on display in the galleries.

The first weekend in June, the Washburn University campus plays host to this outdoor art extravaganza. Come see the work of dozens of artists from all over the country, check out great live music, and give hands-on art activities a whirl!

See Events for all the particulars.

St. Francis Comprehensive Cancer Program
Established in 2007, this Art and Wellness program invites St. Francis Comprehensive Cancer Center patients to free weekly art classes at the Mulvane. Every Thursday evening, participants share in the joy of creativity while making everything from watercolors to tie-dye to fused glass.

Award-winning works have been showcased at the Topeka Performing Arts Center's Gingerbread Homes for the Holidays, and Sheltered Living's Festival of Trees.

This program is sponsored by St. Francis Health Center.

One of the greatest things about art is that it gets people talking. The Mulvane's Conversations are guided discussions about art and what it means in our lives. Feel free to chime in at these casual get-togethers. It's all about conversation, after all!

See Events for the line-up.
