Kansas Focus Recent Acquisitions

To further complement the inaugural opening of the Kansas Focus Gallery, the museum’s McCaffree Gallery and mezzanine (both on the second floor) showcased works by Kansas associated artists which have been acquired in conjunction with this new initiative. Paintings, photographs and works on paper by artists Robert Bingaman, Albert Bloch, Paulina Everitt, Llyod Foltz, Lisa Grossman, Keith Jacobshagen, Michael Krueger, Art Miller, Wilbur Niewald, Doug Osa, Birger Sandzen, Robert Sudlow, Abraham Walkowitz, and Davin Watne will be included.

“This enhanced commitment to artists associated with Kansas allows us to build upon the museum’s longstanding support of area artists,” Executive Director Bruce Hartman said. “The museum now houses the largest and most significant collection of works by artists associated with metropolitan Kansas City, and this new initiative will also further strengthen that aspect of the collection.”
