Greetings to you, wherever you may be self-isolating!
The Beach Museum of Art is closed indefinitely in line with K-State policies. In-person events & programs at the museum are cancelled until further notice. However, we are striving to provide you with art experiences through museum’s collection. Below are links to online art interactives we’ve already developed for adults, children & families. We hope to add more soon.
Our current exhibition “Voices of the West” will be available to view online soon. It includes many never-before-displayed works from the collection, some by regional Native American artists.
Museum’s newest tool “Thinking about Pictures” (TAP) offers images of artworks in the current exhibition “Inspirations: Art for Storytelling.” Choose an image & then challenge yourself to type in your observations & interpretations. Return often to respond to other images. This can be an intergenerational activity. If a young person cannot yet type in responses, an older child or adult can serve as the scribe. Start exploring TAP here.
Explore the museum’s art collection of nearly 10,000 objects for your research or enjoyment with Verandah, the collection search tool. Details here.
The museum’s YouTube channel features videos of art, artists, & special programs. Enjoy the videos here.
The museum has several Educational Resources for schools, early childhood programs, social service organizations, & home school groups. Find details here.
Keep checking our social media page for series of fun interactive posts using art from our collection. Everyone is invited to participate & share!
I hope you enjoy visiting the museum virtually & often!
Best wishes for your health & safety,
Director Linda Duke & the Entire Staff of the Beach Museum of Art
