Capturing the Spirit

Kenneth M. Adams

Prints by Kenneth M. Adams from the Mulvane's Permanent Collection.  

The prints were donated to the Mulvane Art Museum in 1964 by Herbert Spear, in memory of his wife, Mable, the sister of Adams.
Born in Topeka, Adams began art studies in 1913 with George M. Stone, a Topeka Artist.  He later studied at the Chicago Art Institute, the New York Art Students League and spent time in academic training in Europe. While studying with Andrew Dasburg in Woodstock, N.Y., he became acquainted with Cezanne, Picasso and the Cubists.  In 1927, Adams relocated to Taos, N.M., where he became the final and youngest member of the Taos Society of Artists and taught at the University of New Mexico.  He died in Albuquerque in 1966.
