Events at the Mulvane Art Museum are about engagement.  In order to drive toward its potential our arts institution must be a place for voices to be heard.  A place for people to have fun.  A place for conversations, meetings, lectures and parties.  Events at the Mulvane Art Museum are the seeds that allow creative thoughts to sprout new life before our eyes; with intellectual growth and a sense of community soon to follow.

Reception - Endangered Art: A Reprise

Date : Fri, September 06, 2019

Join us at the Mulvane Art Museum for beverages and hors d'oeuvres on the first Friday of September for the Endangered Art: A Reprise reception. On February 1, 2018, the Mulvane Art Museum concurrently launched an exhibition and fundraising project titled Endangered Art. Curatorial staff selected works from the Museum’s permanent collection identified as “most in need of conservation,” to be incorporated in a rare exhibit (February 2, 2018- July 14, 2018) providing an opportunity for the public to see twenty-seven paintings that do not typically go on view because they are in need of conservation, cleaning, and framing. In this process, Mulvane curatorial staff engaged a fine art conservator to assess the selected/exhibited paintings and is currently working to raise the necessary funds to conserve artworks from the permanent collection that require conservation care. The project has funded the conservation of seven artworks to date. Endangered Art: A Reprise features artworks from the permanent collection that are in need of conservation that were not included in our initial exhibition. Further, it demonstrates the dramatic transformation of our recently conserved paintings.
